Snow Falling on Cedars
Author: David Guterson
Soft cover. As new condition. First edition.
Snow Falling on Cedars is a novel by David Guterson set on San Piedro Island, Washington, in 1954. The story centers on the murder trial of a Japanese-American man, Kabuo Miyamoto, accused of killing a fellow fisherman, Carl Heine, Jr. The trial reopens old wounds for the island's residents, including the local newspaper editor, Ishmael Chambers, who was once in love with Kabuo's wife, Hatsue. The novel explores themes of prejudice, the weight of the past, the pursuit of justice, and the complexity of human relationships. As the trial unfolds, Guterson masterfully weaves together flashbacks, newspaper clippings, and courtroom drama to create a compelling and thought-provoking tale of love and loss, identity and belonging, and the power of secrets to shape our lives.
