Yuki Means Happiness with Alison Jean Lester

Thursday 27th July 18:30 at Birmingham

We are incredibly excited to invite you to celebrate the publication of Yuki Means Happiness with the author, Alison Jean Lester. She will be in conversation with Blake Woodham of Brum Radio.

Diana is a young nurse and uneasy in a new relationship when she leaves America and moves halfway around the world to Tokyo seeking adventure.

In Japan she takes a job as a nanny to two-year-old Yuki Yoshimura and sets about adapting to a routine of English practice, ballet and swimming lessons, and Japanese cooking. But as Diana becomes increasingly attached to Yuki she also becomes aware that everything in the Yoshimura household isn't as it first seemed. Before long, she must ask herself if she is brave enough to put everything on the line for the child under her care, confronting her own demons at every step of the way.

Alison Jean Lester was born and raised in the US and the UK and she was educated in the US, the UK, China and Italy. She spent twenty-five years working, writing and raising her children in Japan and Singapore before relocating to the UK in 2016.
