The Earthquake Doll

The gap between the old Japan and the new is never so wide as when it tears open a young girl’s heart…

 

It’s 1952 Japan, seven years since the war was lost to the Americans, seven years since Miyoko lost her father and the home of her birth.

Now she must earn a living by caring for the children of an American family at the nearby air base. When tragedy strikes, sixteen-year-old Miyoko is ordered to obey her family’s wishes or disgrace the memory of her father and bring hardship upon her family.

Tradition says she must obey, but her secret heart whispers that the new laws can free her.

As the earth trembles and splits beneath her, Miyoko must jump forward—or back.
