This review is from: The Crane Wife (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Crane Wife is based on a Japanese folk tale brought into the modern world.
The Mythical creatures, the crane and the volcano are fiercely in love, but the volcano wants destruction and war, where the crane wants harmony and forgiveness.
Unwilling to compromise their love turns into a hurtful and dangerous game of rage and possession.
A divorced middle aged man is woken by a noise in his garden. A great white crane has tumbled to earth, shot through its wing by an arrow. Unexpectedly moved, George helps the bird, and from the moment he watches it fly off, his life is transformed.
A thoroughly beautiful book by a master storyteller.
