A Thousand Cranes: Treasures of Japanese Art by Seattle Art Museum

Acclaimed writer, Kaye Gibbons, demonstrates the subtle mastery of detail and unmistakable character voice in this touching novel.<P>Like America in the mid-nineteenth century, Emma Garnet Tate Lowell is at war with herself. She grows up more and more aware that her familys prosperity is inextricably linked to the institution of slavery. So she sets herself against her fathers unyielding values and survives with a kind heart and strong mind.<P>Lowell recounts her life to us in a poignant tone. Her forbidden marriage to Quincy Lowell. Her and Quincys treatment of wounded soldiers during the Civil War, and the long journey to her own reconstruction.<P>Told in graceful cadences, this book is a shimmering meditation on the divisions of the human heart.
