The Ginger Tree
THE GINGER TREE is a 1977 novel by Scottish novelist Oswald Wynd . The novel was adapted into a 4-part TV series by the BBC
BBC
and Japan's NHK
NHK
for release in 1989, and subsequently shown as part of PBS's Masterpiece Theatre. Because of the adaptation, the novel became Wynd's most famous. The novel follows a Scottish woman who falls in love with Japanese culture, following her from 1903 to 1942. RECEPTIONKirkus Reviews was very positive about the novel, writing "Wynd maneuvers skillfully among Chinese and Japanese mores and landscapes--an acute selection from the author's apparently vast, engaged knowledge of the East. A completely diverting and moving tracery of the hardening destiny of a nation and the quiet shriveling of one heart." REFERENCES * ^ A B "Obituary: Oswald Wynd". The Independent.
