Recommended :: Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet


I recently finished “Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet” and really enjoyed it – thank you to my friend Hilary for the suggestion! The book goes back and forth from the 40s to the present day and is the story of a Father sharing his past with his son and telling the story of his love for a friend at the height of the war. I confess that before reading it I hadn’t fully understood the extent of the internment of Japanese Americans during that time – such a tragic page in our history.

It’s an absorbing story with really lovely characters – I recommend it!
