<strong>BorderKitchen evening&nbsp;</strong><br />
At BorderKitchen she will talk about her latest novel The Japanese Lover, a book only she could write: colourful, full of drama, humour, cliff hangers and two women you can't help but love. The price for the evening includes&nbsp;a beverage and a goodie bag with a signed copy of <em>Portret in sepia</em> (Dutch).<br />
<br />
<strong>About The Japanese Lover</strong><br />
Alma is ten years old when she is sent to America by her parents in 1939 to escape the Nazis. The sadness she feels for the family she left behind in Poland is only softened by her friendship with her second cousin Nathaniel and with Ichimei, the son of an American-Japanese couple. The hostility with which American society treats them during and after the second World War &ndash; Alma is a refugee, Nathaniel is Jewish and Ichimei is Japanese &ndash; keeps them together. Ichimei is Alma's true love, but she marries Nathaniel. Yet their lives remain linked, as they share a terrible secret.&nbsp;<br />
