Description: Mitzko, the granddaughter of a Geisha, is caught between two opposing worlds of old Japan and new America. Her indomitable desire to heal lifts her above this bitter conflict. Her heroic father, her reed-like mother, and the American boys and men are the powerful characters that populate her world. This coming-of-age novel is a beautifully written saga of personal resilience and the story of a woman's special humanity despite life's terrors.

Chayym Zeldis' work has been called "brave and monumental" by the Chicago Tribune Book World, and "beautiful and elegant" by the Los Angeles Times.
