The Japanese Lover opens in 1939. Poland has fallen under the shadow of the Nazis, so is sent to live with relatives in San Francisco. There she encounters Ichimei, the son of the family’s Japanese gardener. A tender love affair begins to blossom, until the two are cruelly separated by the consequences of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Isabel Allende is the author of a number of bestselling books, including The House of the Spirits and Daughter of Fortune.
