Seventeen-year-old Naoko Nakamura's prearranged marriage secures her family's status in their traditional Japanese community.

A BBC Radio 2 Book Club pick

'A book that is meant to be savoured and re-read' Renita D'Silva, author of The Forgotten Daughter Japan, 1957.

Seventeen-year-old Naoko Nakamura's prearranged marriage secures her family's status in their traditional Japanese community. However, Naoko has fallen for an American sailor and to marry him would bring great shame upon her entire family.

When it's learned Naoko carries the sailor's child, she's cast out in disgrace and forced to make unimaginable choices with consequences that will ripple across generations. America, present day. Tori Kovač, caring for her dying father, finds a letter containing a shocking revelation. Setting out to learn the truth, Tori's journey leads her to a remote seaside village in Japan where she must confront the demons of the past to pave a way for redemption.

Inspired by true stories, The Woman in the White Kimono illuminates a searing portrait of one woman torn between her culture and her heart, and another woman on a journey to discover the true meaning of home. What Reviewers and Readers Say: 'Cinematic, deeply moving, and beautifully written. I so enjoyed this' Carol Mason, author of After You Left
