Instagram Update: KA-E-RO-U Time to Go Home by @b.jeanneshibahara 🌸 “In Japan…everywhere…red strings tie all people we meet together. Some strings are weak. Some have tangles. Some strong.” We received two #reviewbooks as #cobloggers, which is great. Thank you 😊 “Meryl—Vietnam War widow—misses her grown son, feels left out after her father’s recent marriage. A WWII Japanese flag falls into her hands. The gentle push of a love-struck professor starts her adventure—take the flag home. From the neon of Osaka, to the ancient capital Nara, to the forests of Akita, the trail follows a newspaper reporter, factory manager, ikebana teacher, a Matagi hunter and winds through Japanese culture, past and present. A story of shared humanity and love “in the simplest things.” #bookbloggers #amreading #KAEROUTimeToGoHome #BJeanneShibahara #history #historicalfiction #books #bookblogger #booksofinstagram #freebie #bookblog #blogger
