This story is told against a gripping backdrop of war and the horrors and humiliations of the Japanese American war internment camps following Pearl Harbor. But even in the most dire and hopeless circumstances people can dream and Hanako and her best friend, Melanie Tanaka dreamt of pitching their unusual talent in fashion designing into the world of haute couture and high fashion. The odds against them were as unscalable as Mount Fuji in winter but dreams were free... This book is based on the true story of the turbulent life of Hanako Ishigaki as she was tossed around the winds of migration, war internment camps and an incredibly unlikely and impossible love affair woven into it to add poignance to a story of great courage and determination to survive and succeed against all odds.

सत्तरच्या दशकातली ही कथा आहे. बोस्टन शहरातील `मेमोरियल` हे एक प्रतिष्ठित व भव्य रुग्णालय. दरवर्षी प्रमाणे त्यावर्षी सुद्धा मेडिकल च्या पाच विद्यार्थ्यांचा एक समूह तिथे प्रशिक्षणासाठी येतो. त्यांतलीच एक म्हणजे कथेची नायिका - सुसान. तिथे तिला अज्ञातव रहस्यमय कारणाने कोमात गेलेल्या रुग्णांच्या काही केसेस पाहायला मिळतात. बुद्धिमान सुसान तशी अभ्यासू असल्यामुळे व तसेच काही रुग्णांबद्दल वाटणाऱ्या सहानुभूतीमुळे तिच्या मनात अशा अज्ञात कारणाने कोमात जाणाऱ्या रुग्णांच्या केसेस बद्दल कुतूहल निर्माण होतं. आणि मग ती त्या प्रकरणांचा छडा लावायचा कसा प्रयत्न करते, तिला कोणकोणते अडथळे येतात आणि शेवटी भीषण वास्तव कसं समोर येतं ते सांगणारी ही रंजक कथा. कथेतील बरेच प्रसंग हे थरारक असले तरी पुढे काय होईल त्याचा अंदाज लागतो. तसेच मलपृष्ठावरील परिचय देणाऱ्या मजकुरामुळे रुग्ण कोमात का जातायत त्याचा थोडा अंदाज वाचकाला आधीच आलेला असतो. त्यामुळे रहस्याचा घटक थोडा कमी झालेला आहे. अनुवाद नेहमीप्रमाणे उत्तम. एकदा नक्कीच वाचण्यासारखी कादंबरी. अभिप्राय- 3.5/5 #थरारकथा ...Read more
