It's , and Tian (short for Christiane) tells about being held in a Japanese prison camp in Kontum, Indochina, along with her Chinese father Yeu, her French mother Marcelle.

      In this powerful story of love and redemption, Matthew McConaughey stars as Arthur Brennan, an American professor who travels to Japan in the .   Sea of Trees is an exciting quick-paced read that exemplifies story telling at its finest. It's not an extremely long book, but the short time that you spend reading will leave you wanting more. Sea of Trees reads extremely fast and the character development is amazing. A few pages in and you feel a connection with each of the characters/5(47).
