Book Review of The Buddha in the Attic

The Buddha in the Attic

What was it like for these Japanese picture brides? What were the challenges they faced, in the home and in society? The writing style was very effective in giving all of their voices the space to be heard, to not be forgotten, relating their struggle to fit into a society that hardly valued them and of being forced to leave behind everything they worked for during the war. It's heartbreaking as it is insightful and definitely not to be missed. 4.5 stars.
