Reflections on a choice

At Home in Japan: a foreign woman's journey of discovery by Rebecca Otowa. It is a memoir of an American/Australian woman who mets and marries a man from a small town in Japan. It is not full of a lot of personal details, but does a wonderful and graceful job of reflecting on life in rural Japan.
I found the information on living in a Japanese house and in a village fascinating. And Otowa has a wonderful ability to capture the essence of things in her turn of phrase. I hope she writes more.
