The Buddha in the attic by Julie Otsuka tells the story of a group of young women brought from Japan to San Francisco as “picture brides” nearly a century ago. The book traces their extraordinary lives from the arduous journey across the Pacific Ocean to a country where they don't speak the language or understand the culture and to husbands they never met.
