In the launch of a 20-city nationwide book tour, Jamie Ford, the New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, returns to the city of his childhood—in a literary sense and a physical one—for his much-anticipated second novel, Songs of Willow Frost. Set against the backdrop of Depression-era Seattle, Songs of Willow Frost is a tale of two souls—12-year-old William Eng, a Chinese-American boy with dreams for his future, and Willow Frost, a movie star escaping her haunted past—both seeking love, hope, and forgiveness. Their stories trace an emotional journey of discovery that will resonate with anyone who has ever longed for the comforts of family and a place to call home.
