Such an evocative read. A very beautiful, almost visual story that rings true as an experience of someone from abroad coming to live in Japan.

Format: Paperback
At 72 pages, 'Woman Who Brings The Rain' can easily be read in one go, and I recommend doing so. The author succeeds in describing the different day-to-day episodes with an attention to detail, yet without verbosity. From the very beginning the characters and surroundings came to life for me, and I became quite immersed in the story.

The memoir is very subjective and at the same time non-judgemental, which impresses me. Along the way, as it were, and without interrupting the flow of the prose, interesting general information about Hokkaido is given. As I imagine it as a 'frontier' area with a violent human history, they evoke a feeling of melancholy in me.

In short, a captivating book.

I have been lucky to buy this book the title of which I found enticing. I can only say that it fulfilled all my expectations – and far beyond! A wonderful read which will nourish me for months to come. It’s such a sensitive account and all in a very beautiful language. I am looking forward to reading more from this writer.
