Morgenstern’s straightforward, clean style lets the story tell itself. Ayumi, [a] backpacker from Tokyo, comes alive with her honest drive to understand betrayal and loyalty –in their lives and her own. Yoko Morgenstern is a debut novelist unafraid of complex questions, and gifted with the simple touch.”
-Katherine Govier, novelist

The author will give a short reading at 6:30pm, followed by a book signing.
