A rich, fun, spicy novel about the all-time, most impossible journey of an American woman determined to make it in Japan.
When Sarah Green discovers her destiny is to tie her life with Japan, she does everything possible to make it there. This, however, comes with a price.
As she climbs up the corporate ladder in her Tokyo-based, Japanese firm, everything else falls apart. Only the singing widow of a Buddhist priest, a white Persian cat, an ex-sumo champion, and a handsome mystery man can help her mold together her scattered self into a version of the woman she truly thirsts to be.
The Singing Widow of a Buddhist Priest is narrated in Sarah Green’s witty, determined and, at times, insecure voice. The novel is humorous yet elegant in both its descriptions of Japan and its culture. It is a must read for Japan lovers, especially for those who can enjoy light reading and never stop believing that dreams can come true.
