I just finished reading "Sayonara" by James Mitchner. I have read quite a few of his books but this was the first I have read in years.
The story is a romance set during the Korean War. The theme is similar to the Puchini Opera "Madam Butterfly" which is referenced several times in the text.

Beautifully written and tender. I learned about the "Takarazuka Girls", an entertainment that survives today. The word pictures of the theater performances had me closing my eyes and visualizing. A most enjoyable read.
