On the radio talking about Sophie and the Rising Sun!
Beautifully written, thought provoking and romantic, all while making us reflect upon ourselves, our humanity and society. Augusta Trobaugh joins us to discuss her novel Sophie and the Rising Sun, a novel that is romantic and thoughtful like a Nicholas Sparks novel.
Sophie learns to live with the death of her first love during WWI. She meets Oto, a quiet and kind Japanese American man and they strike up a friendship that soon grows into something more. On the eve of their realization for their feelings for each other WWII drags America into the horrors of death, destruction and often paranoia.
Listen to the podcast to find out the behind the scenes events and thoughts behind the making of the novel.
