I have been an admirer of Tara's blog Tea and Cookies since the beginning. I love her writing style. Her writing has the ability to take me places in my head. Tales from High Mountain does just that. I lived every moment as she lived it. The book is a mixture of culture,family, emotions, food. Although it is an adults book, it is a book I would have enjoyed reading to my children when they were around 9 - 10 years of age.

This is a really fun, though rather short, story about a woman who goes to live in Japan for a few seasons. The story details her culture and how when she moves back home to the states she ends up missing her new family in Japan. The story also includes some really great recipes at the end, and let me tell you, homemade udon noodles rock.

Tara, or Tea as she is affectionately known due to the name of her amazing food blog Tea and Cookies ([...]), has given us a tantalizing slice of life in rural Japan. She touchingly describes the awkwardness, in all of its different guises, of being a Westerner in a small Japanese town. The language, customs, holidays, even the food are foreign to her, in spite of having spent summers there as a child. She finds her way, true to a food lover, in the kitchen with the help of her patient homestay mother. This is such a lovely taste of her years there, the tip of the iceberg, and I can only hope that she will produce parts 2 and more soon. Tara has written this book from her heart and what she gives to us with her beautiful prose she also hopes to give back to Japan. She plans to donate proceeds from the book to ongoing tsunami relief in her adopted country. An added bonus are some of her favorite Japanese recipes.

It is an exquisitely written narrative of the author falling in love. The author spends 3 months in Takayama or High Mountain, living as a member of a local family. She becomes intimate with everyday aspects of life there: from architecture, food, to festivals that are far ingrained into its residents.

The writing is beautifully simple, and narrates the author's experience eloquently. It is as though we can see the world in which she was immersed through her very own eyes.

Highly recommended to those who have visited or wants to visit Japan, as well as to the romantics who believe that we also fall in love with inanimate objects and the surroundings.
