Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet By Jamie Ford

In the opening pages of Jamie Ford’s stunning debut novel, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside the Panama Hotel, once the gateway to Seattle’s Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families, left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. As Henry looks on, the owner opens a Japanese parasol.

With this sweeping story, readers are transported to Seattle in the 1940s, to the heartbreaking realities of World War II internment, the bitter feelings between the Chinese and Japanese, and a timeless story of love and hope.
