Snow Falling on Cedars, Paperback / softback Book

Snow Falling on Cedars Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In 1954 a fisherman is found dead in the nets of his boat, and a local Japanese-American man is charged with his murder.

In the course of his trial, it becomes clear that what is at stake is more than one man's guilt.

For on San Piedro, memories grow as thickly as cedar trees and the fields of ripe strawberries - memories of a charmed love affair between a white boy and a Japanese girl; memories of land desired, paid for, and lost.

Above all, San Piedro is haunted by the memory of what happened to its Japanese residents during World War II, when an entire community was sent into exile while its neighbours watched.
