In this sequel to Watkins' fictionalized autobiography So Far from the Bamboo Grove, thirteen-year-old Yoko, her sister Ko, and her brother Hideyo live together in postWorld War II Japan, struggling to make a life for themselves after their harrowing escape from Korea. Yoko's family was stationed in North Korea during World War II while Yoko's father worked as a Japanese government official in nearby Manchuria, but they were forced to flee the country when Russian and Korean Communists escalated their war against Japan and drove the Japanese people out of Korea. Yoko and her sister Ko escaped with their mother, who later died, and Hideyo escaped alone and later reunited with his sisters in Kyoto. Browse all BookRags Study Guides. All rights reserved.
