Memoirs of a Geisha: A Novel

Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden I remember reading this over a labour week-end and being completly captivated by the story of this young girll, sold into, well, slavery even if that's not the word they are using. The manner in which she made her way through life from her virginity being sold to the highest bidder to her retirement in America and coming through WW2 and finding some kind of peace. I'm not gonna reread this again But it's associated with nice memories of reading in the sun on the shore of a very nice river on a holiday week-end.
