The Flowers of War by Geling Yan, Nicky Harman (Translator)


5 of 5 stars  *****

The brutal war between Japan and China in World War II leaves an indelible impression on a young girl in a Chinese convent. This is a story that brings war to the audience in a realistic portrayal that finds the greatness of the human spirit amid the pain and sacrifice of tragedy.
