Where is home for you? Either literally or your definition

Where is home for you? Either literally or your definition of home. I have three answers: 1. Bay Area, California 2. Anywhere my family is and 3. Whenever I go to the desert and mountains of Southern Utah and New Mexico the very smell (especially rain over rock) gives me such a feeling of comfort and rightness that it’s immediately home for me. . Today I’m on the @tlcbooktours to share “The Woman in the White Kimono”, which “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”. Since this is based on true stories, this is a historical fiction centered around a little-known era in Japanese and American history. (Synopsis below). Not only am I drawn to historical fiction, but I’m always interested in it if Japanese/American history is involved and I’m looking forward to reading this one this year. . Synopsis: Japan, 1957. Seventeen-year-old Naoko Nakamura’s prearranged marriage to the son of her father’s business associate would secure her family’s status in their traditional Japanese community, but Naoko has fallen for another man—an American sailor, a gaijin—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 Kovac, caring for her dying father, finds a letter containing a shocking revelation—one that calls into question everything she understood about him, her family and herself. Setting out to learn the truth behind the letter, Tori’s journey leads her halfway around the world to a remote seaside village in Japan, where she must confront the demons of the past to pave a way for redemption. . #Thewomaninthewhitekimono @harlequinbooks @parkrowbooks @author _anajohns #AnaJohns #ParkRow #historicalfiction #Japan #bookclub #mustread #tlcbooktours #ourmoodydays #bookishlife #bookgeek #bookrecommendation #fromabove #flatlaysquad #livethelittlethings #livemoremagic #everysquareastory #livemoremagic
