    1 thought on “The Seventh Stone

    1. "The Seventh Stone" is one of the best books I have ever read. Knowing a bit about Japanese culture and traditions I found this book to be quite truthful to what I know. The story has everything. It is shocking, admirable, deceitful, passionate, courageous, and rooted deep, deep in honor and tradition. If you do not know anything about the Japanese you will understand them much better after reading this novel which spans three generations of of the Sanogawa family beginning with the childhood of [...]

    2. Great book on explaining Japanese culture, which Americans have no understanding of. The book tells the story of a Kamikaze pilot and his wife and their two following generations. A masterful explaining of their customs by the author who put a lot of thought into her writing, to better enable anyone to better understand the Japanese culture. I waffled back and forth on giving it four or five stars and finally settled on four because I would have liked more on Momoko and Takeo. A great read.

    3. Incredible insight into the minds of the Japanese. Nancy Freedman's tale of a Sumurai family is beautifully written and helps one understand the Japanese culture that otherwise is hard to comprehend.

    4. I read this book literally in two sittings. Not only was it historically well researched it was a wonderful insight to the Japanese customs of sacrifice and honour. The story line was compelling as the characters wrestled with their own human shortcomings. A real page turner
