Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford




Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford is set in the Seattle, WA area and follows the life of Henry, a Chinese-American. It is based in the turbulent 1940's; a time when World War II raged on and the U.S. government sanctioned the "Japanese American Internment."

Mr. Ford weaves a tale of Henry's past and present day life exploring racial prejudices, a forbidden childhood love and the age-old struggles often found between fathers and sons. It's a story of hope, love, forgiveness and how life's sweetest gifts can sometimes come from the bitter ashes of our sorrows.
