By Ellis Avery. Almost done with this, I love it. A French orphan finds herself "adopted" by a Japanese family in 1866 Kyoto, whose patriarch is a tea master, and the book details the experience of the tea ceremony, but more importantly to me, life in Japan at that time. It has memorable characters and lovely descriptions of the way of life in Japan, the culture, and the politics.

But we shoulda drank it down while it was still sweet;
It all goes bad eventually."

Sounds cool. I'll add that to my list!
BS, now age 54, d-day 6-2-08, divorced after 17 years M and 20 together. In some ways I have not 'gotten over it'. But I am resilient and have created a good life where I am mostly happy.
