Summary:

This lyrical novel sweeps listeners away to an ignoble period from Japanese history, when lives were shattered by intolerance—and for one group of societal outcasts, survival hinged on the determination of the human spirit. In 1948, a 19-year-old pearl diver with leprosy is forced to erase her name from family records and move to an island leprosarium. Mere miles from the home she can never return to, she must accept that her life will never be the same.
