Yun Ling Teoh is a woman, quite literally, scarred by war, a WW II Japanese labor camp in Malaya, who years afterward is still seeking answers to where she was and coming to terms with her sister’s death in the camp. Can a garden heal? Can the unique construct of a Japanese garden built by master gardener Aritomo once in the Emperor’s employ bring peace to all the souls touched by brutality? What lovely prose and beautiful images the author makes; all the time casting an air of mystery and intrigue around the characters that makes the book a page turner.

This writer's second novel, short-listed for the Booker prize. Similar themes and settings to his first work, "The Gift of Rain". One of my favorites in 2013.
