You learn many of the character's secrets and Isabel Allende has a gift for doling these out in a well-paced, suspenseful way.
Oh, I loved this book. It captivated me completely. I usually read 2 or 3 books at the same time, switching them up to keep from getting bored. I couldn't read anything else while reading this one!

I always love Allende. She is a very talented storyteller. The Japanese Lover is no exception. I didn't know much about the Japanese internment camps so I appreciate Allende's story.
There are so many beautiful layers to this book. It was like peeling back petals of a flower. Such a beautiful story.

I loved this book so much that I hurried to read her previous novels. She's now one of my favorite authors.
Such a beautiful story about the intertwining of lives and loves over generations.
