Praise for The Diplomat's Daughter:
"Karin Tanabe’s moving new novel, The Diplomat's Daughter, is set during the global turmoil of the late 1930s and ‘40s, but its political resonance is timeless and its story is captivating...All this makes for rich reading. And even though we know how World War II concludes, the fates of Emi, Leo, and Christian will surprise you." (Washington Post)

What an epic story! Emi Kato is the daughter of a Japanese diplomat living in the United States as Pearl Harbor occurs. She has two loves in a short amount of time and this story documents those loves as they happen and what happens after.
The best thing about this book is that Emi, Christian and Leo each get the opportunity to narrate their part of the story. I love how the book was crafted and where you initially meet Emi and then the going back in time to see how she meet each boy and their impact on her life. Emi is the main character, but Christian and Leo are so integral to the story and showing the many different impacts that World War II on different types of people.
A love story with much wartime history.
