Review by

This is a romance about a Japanese woman who goes to England to study and then falls in love with another student. The first half is quite interesting, but then the story changes quite suddenly and I didn't enjoy the second half so much.

Review by

Ikuko fell in love with a man in spite of having a boyfriend, though at last they had to part. Many years later, her grandson and the man’s granddaughter fell in love with each other. At first I didn’t like the fact that Ikuko had betrayed her boyfriend, but knowing their grandchildren’s’ story, now I think that it might be destiny that she was attracted to the man.
