A mother-daughter story about the strong pull of tradition, and the lure and cost of breaking free of it.

When Shoko decided to marry an American GI and leave Japan, she had her parents' blessing, her brother's scorn, and a gift from her husband-a book on how to be a proper American housewife.

As she crossed the ocean to America, Shoko also brought with her a secret she would need to keep her entire life...

Half a century later, Shoko's plans to finally return to Japan and reconcile with her brother are derailed by illness. In her place, she sends her grown American daughter, Sue, a divorced single mother whose own life isn't what she hoped for. As Sue takes in Japan, with all its beauty and contradictions, she discovers another side to her mother and returns to America unexpectedly changed and irrevocably touched.

    A good read, which in the end, seemed relieved to be finished and tied up in a sweet little package. The early tales of life in prewar Japan were told simply and effectively. The love story that shouldn't have been, was also very moving. A sequel could be imagined telling the granddaughter's experiences while living in Japan in the present day. Expect to be entertained.
  • Great book

    Sweet & simplistic, this reads as one might expect from an author of teen novels.
  • How to be an American housewife is good

    By Gizzy12345
    This book is hard to put down. I loved every page. I was hoping for more at the end, but I still regard it as a 7 out of 10. It's an inspiring story of a young Japanese woman trying to date/ find a suitable husband in ww2 Japan. She has to choose an American husband or be stuck with a poor future in Japan. Great read!! I would only hope for 200 more pages.
