In sleepy Salty Creek, Georgia, strangers are rare. When a quiet, unassuming stranger arrives - a Japanese man with a secret history of his own - he becomes the talk of the town and a new beginning for lonely Sophie, who lost her first love during World War I.

Middle-aged Sophie had resigned herself to a passionless existence. That all begins to change as she finds herself drawn to the mysterious Mr. Oto. When the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, Mr. Oto's newfound life comes under siege; his safety, even in Salty Creek, is no longer certain. Sophie must decide how much she is willing to risk for a future with the man who has brought such joy into her life. Visit the author at: www.AugustaTrobaugh.com

    " I read this as part of a book club. I really enjoyed it and wanted more in the end. I was hanging on to the characters lives and really ended up making my own things up for their lives. I felt it was not finished, but I am not the author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jill | 5/8/2013

    " This book was painful to read, but I had to finish it for a book club discussion. Great premise, but completely failed to deliver. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey Grant | 1/29/2013

    " Very different, but I liked it in an "Lot of questions unanswered, leave it to your own imagination" kind of way. And yet, believable somehow.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michella96 | 12/15/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robynn | 11/9/2012

    " WWII, the south, a proper southern lady, and a Japanese-American gardener. What a great combination for a compelling love story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Precise | 10/19/2012

    " A quiet and introspective book. I picked this up expecting Southern gothic and instead received a delicate treatment of overcoming social barriers when a Japanese gardner falls in love with a hometown Georgia girl during the outbreak of World War II. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 8/1/2012

    " Books about the south enthrall me. Such a different way of life, especially 50 or 60 years ago. This is a great story about self discovery and the character of people and the influence they can have in our lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 6/20/2012

    " I have read about this author, and I randomly found the book. The story is in a similar vein to The Help, without the shocking elements, with glimpses, rather than revelations. It is sweet, and it ends sweetly with bitterness thrown away... I think it is hard to do this well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michalyn | 5/20/2012

    " Sweet fluffy summer reading material. "

    " Good story. It left me wanting more.... "
