Book: Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
Author: Jamie Ford
Rating: 5 out of 5


Love, love, love this book. I always gravitate towards fiction that is based on historical events. This novel is a love story that takes place during WWII between a Japanese girl and Chinese boy. In the United States during WWII, anyone of Japanese descent was pushed out of their homes and sent to live in concentration camps. The young girl is sent away with her family, while the boy is torn between his love for her and duty to his family. It almost has a Romeo and Juliet feel to it without the tragic ending. This is a lovely and heartbreaking story. I strongly recommend you pick it up!
