This was a good story - I like all of Isabel Wolff's books. It had some historical education in it as well as a good story.

This book's theme is about WW II in the pacific. It relates the atrocities that the Dutch people in Java endured during the war. The main character, Jenni interviews Klara, a Dutch woman who was a child during the Japanese occupation of Java. Jenni realizes that Klara and she have secrets in their past that they are carrying alone. An interesting read.

An excellent book that gives insights into the plight of women and children in Java. Something about history that I did not know. The style in which this book is written is excellent and made for a very enjoyable read.
