Description: So begins Kate Walbert's beautiful and heartbreaking novel about a young woman, Ellen, coming of age in the long shadow of World War II. Forty years later she tells her daughter about this period, beginning with the death of her favorite cousin, Randall, with whom she had shared Easter Sundays, secrets, and, perhaps, love. When Ellen receives a package after Randall's death containing his diary and a book called The Gardens of Kyoto, her bond to him is cemented, and the mysteries of his short life start to unravel.

But soon we begin to realize that Ellen's memory may be distorting reality, sweetened as it is by her imagination and her enduring dreams of true romance. With lyrical, seductive prose, Walbert weaves several parallel stories of unrequited love and of men haunted by their experiences at war -- strands that twist together in unexpected ways before the truth is ultimately revealed.

Based on a Pushcart and O'Henry Prize-winning story, this masterful and beguiling first novel establishes Walbert as a writer of astonishing elegance and power.
