Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nice story but.....  Jan 17, 2008
This is a quick and enjoyable read for the most part until the end. The story is about 2 Japan natives who fall in love during WWII. Mieko is called to war but vows to come back to his lover, Tori. While he is gone, the bombing of Hirashima and Nagasaki take place and almost all hope for a reconciliation is gone. Don't loose hope though, there are actually happy parts to this book. The problem I have with it is after finishing it, I felt like I was snookered by the author. It was like he set me up to tell a simple fictional story and then at the end you realize he is trying to publicize his political agenda. Not fair. The idea is definitely unique and it made me stop and think but it still left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
 
A brief but powerful story of love, forgiveness and peace  Oct 2, 2007
This book opens in Japan during the second World War, with two teenagers from Hiroshima falling in love. When Mieko is called to serve in the Army, he makes a pledge to his beloved Tori. The traumatic events at the end of the war change both their lives, forever. In the chaos after the war, Tori begins a long search for Mieko, while Mieko believes that everyone he loves has perished in the atomic bomb blast that destroyed Hiroshima. Mieko sets out for the United States with a plan to exact his revenge.

This is a story of love and hatred, revenge and forgiveness. It is a reminder that hatred and revenge are caustic and blinding, and that peace can only be achieved through forgiveness. Love can conquer all. Its a powerful story for such a short book, and though the prose is, at times, simplistic and stilted, the author still conveys strong emotional content. This might be a great book for a teenage audience, with its message of peace and forgiveness.
 
An inspiring story of lovers torn apart by the bombings of Hiroshima & Nagasaki  Sep 15, 2007
Dan Maloney's debut novel is one of the best I've read in a long while. It tells the story of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki from an entirely new perspective--from the inside looking out.

Two lovers are torn apart on the day of the bombings, only finding each other years later. What happens to Tori and Mieko will tear at your heart strings. Why does Tori not reveal herself to Mieko when she finally finds him? Why does he seek revenge on Americans? And how are his eyes finally opened to forgiveness?

To find the answers you'll have to RFY (read for yourself). I'm not about to put any spoilers in this review.

This is a story of true love that lasts a lifetime, of destruction, revenge, and, finally, of redemption. Dan Maloney proves himself a talented writer as he brings his characters to life right before your eyes. He's great at dialogue, description, and pacing too.

I couldn't put this book down; the plot held me spellbound. I fell in love with Tori and was rooting for her all the way. I wanted to slap Mieko up the side of his face a few times, but, all in all, he was a good man.

Great job, Dan Maloney! I look forward to more novels from you and will follow your career with interest.
 
Amazing!  Jul 29, 2007
Wow!! It is not often that a book captures my attention that I read the book in one sitting. This is a powerfully written story. Every August we hear about the bombings in Japan. We hear about the devestation. This story tells us how it affected individual people, how it affected Mieko and Tori. How it changed their lives forever. But love conquers all.

To quote a statement made by Tori in the book: "We must all learn to forgive one another."
 
A Book Worth Reading  Jul 10, 2007
Dan Maloney has certainly succeeded with his historical account of love, forgiveness, faith, and persistence. He has created a compelling story of two Japanese lovers seperated by the violence and destruction of war. This book was hard to put down. It touched my soul and will certainly touch many others. Its professionally written with detail and emotion that will keep you reading right to the end. Get this book and look for this author to produce more quality work in the future. Thanks Dan for the opportunity to read your work of art.


Highly recommended.
