In this evocative and thrilling epic novel, fifteen-year-old Yoshi Kobayashi, child of Japan’s New Empire, daughter of an ardent expansionist and a mother with a haunting past, is on her way home on a March night when American bombers shower her city with napalm - an attack that leaves one hundred thousand dead within hours and half the city in ashen ruins.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A good story with different perspectives on the second world war.

What didn’t you like about Robert Sams’s performance?

Awful japanese pronounciation destroyed my enjoyment of the performance.
