Very intruiging. I love Whitney's writing style. This was a wonderful story. Set in post WWII, it was interesting and quite frustrating to see how the women defined themselves by their husbands and their marriages.
When Marcia Talbot recieves the letter from her husband Jerome telling her that he wants a divorce, she acts quickly. She boardsa plane to japan, where Jerome has been working, confident that she can change his mind and bring him back home with her.
But when she arrives, Marcia is no longer sure... of anything. jerome is a stranger to her-a man obsessed with Japan and the mysterious work going on in his laboratory. he tells her only that he will never return to the States, leaving her confused and hurt. What, or who is so important to him that he would give up all that they have together? And what frightening truth waits behind the locked door to which jerome, and Jerome only, holds the key?
