Why She Left Us

  • A haunting novel of uncommon emotional power, Why She Left Us weaves in and out of the political persecution and personal tragedies of three generations of a Japanese-American family and exposes the complex, often destructive, bonds of love and honour that tie a family together.

    After giving birth to a child out of wedlock on the eve of World War II, Emi Okada flees to the U.S. where she endures internment in the Colorado desert and then embarks on a lifetime of unraveling the family secrets that have shaped her troubled existence.
