The discovery of a parasol in a boarded up hotel stirs memories of a lost love in Henry Lee, and prompts him to examine the prejudices that governed his choices decades ago. Set during one of the most conflicted and volatile times in American history, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet is an extraordinary story of commitment and enduring hope. In Henry and Keiko, Jamie Ford has created an unforgettable duo whose story teaches us of the power of forgiveness and the human heart. Hope and longing bridge Henry Lee’s 1940s boyhood in Seattle’s Chinatown and, decades later, his second chance at love after a miraculous discovery in the basement of the Panama Hotel. Historic events and places mesh in this story of quiet devotion. Our book discussion will be at lunchtime (12:15-1:30) on March 26th in the Hunt Room.
