AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Miracle Tree is a story of a family separated by war ... a husband and wife and her mother (who was alienated from them by their hasty and unannounced marriage before the war). Taro, the husband, and Hanako, the wife, are parted by the war and after its end Taro discovers that Hanako was in Nagasaki when the atom bomb was dropped. He goes there in search of her but eventually presumes her dead and concentrates on his new garden, caring in particular for the pine tree of the title, which he has planted himself.'
