The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness

craneA touching, dreamlike and magical book. Based on a Japanese folk tale, the modern-day story of lonely unfulfilled divorcee George and the love he finds with the mysterious Kumiko is interwoven with a mythical tale of the destructive love between the Lady and the Volcano.

Heartbreaking in places, the characters have brilliant, believable voices and the whole thing is written with a magician’s touch. Beautiful.
