    review After the Bloom Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB After the BloomI got an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review The premise of the book how the Japanese were interned during WWII interested me as I didn't know too much about this part of American history I found Lily's story during the war confusing and very hard to follow Rita's story looking for her mother was somewhat easier to follow but it still left many uestions in my mind I found the conclusion of the book very strange and the coincidences too unbelievable also Overall I struggled through the novel as I don't easily give up once I start it This book was a disappointment for me do not recommend Thanks NetGalley the publisher and the author Leslie Shimotakara for the advanced copy
