Read full description of the books:
Den unge Hiroko Tanaka flygter i 1945 fra et Japan hvor unge drenge vil være kamikazepiloter, og hvor al fortid og håb om fremtid er udraderet af atombomben. Hirokos tyske kæreste Konrad er død, og i mangel af pårørende opsøger hun Konrads halvsøster Elisabeth. Elisabeth bor i Indien med sin britiske mand James Burton og deres ansatte Sajjad Ashraf. Skæbnen binder de fire sammen i et fællesskab, og som tiden går, udskiftes gamle hjem med nye, i takt med at krige stopper og nye konflikter opstår.
Romanen er en stor, episk fortælling om katastofer, kærlighed og loyalitet på tværs af tid og sted.
