About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Stroup, Dorothy

From Library Journal:

By the spring of 1945 civilian life in Japan had become a ceaseless struggle to stretch the scant food supply and to do essential war work. In Stroup's novel, Chiyo Hara has three children to look after and a husband in a Siberian POW camp. But when the atomic bomb falls on her city, Hiroshima, survival takes on a new meaning. This is a sensitively told tale of a family and a city's rise from the ashes of one of humankind's most devastating acts. The author vividly re-creates the horrors of the A-bomb, as inhabitants try to locate loved ones and cope with injuries previously unknown. The characters are well drawn, and one cannot help but get caught up in the fortunes of the Haras. A beautiful statement on the strength of family and on human tenacity. Recommended. Maria A.
