Gs When Satō hires Kaitarō a wakaresaseya agent to have an affair with his wife Rina he assumes it will be an easy case But Satō has never truly understood Rina or her desires and Kaitarō's job is to do exactly that until he does it too well While Rina remains ignorant of the circumstances that brought them together she and Kaitarō fall in a desperate singular love setting in motion a series of violent acts that will forever Aishitimasu An expression of romantic love not meant for a book but I really did love thisWhat to do when love ends or was never there in the first place?Maybe you’d like to end a professional relationship?The solution in Japanese society could involve a Wakaresaseya which is an agent for hire who discretely breaks partnerships apart A sordid business it is using unethical practices to gain favorable positioning for the person initiating the splitAfter obtaining a client contract the Wakaresaseya studies the subject to plan a strategy Spouses may be drawn into affairs business ties uietly severed by unearthing secrets casting a career shadow The list goes on How far is too far? The debate remains as the little known industry continues with scant regulationSumiko has grown up with a lie Her mother was murdered not killed in a car accident as she was told We find out early that her father hired a Wakaresaseya to effect a divorce and achieve financial and custodial advantages As she traces her memories and investigates her mother’s death she reconciles her past and present How did her mother die and what happened?I loved this beautiful book A luxuriant trip into an appreciated culture weaving small bits of everyday life and scenery into the story it doesn’t move fast However I was captivated as I was brought to reminisce about my visit to Japan long ago Just the mention of a Bento box and lacuer chopsticks too small for a child’s hand brought it to lifeThe physical copy itself was uietly resplendent in its presentation from the exuisite cover to the thick cream pages Small bamboo leaf prints and kanji within the text added nuance Lastly if you have a moment check out the author’s impressive bio She’s earned high praise for her research some of it in connection to this book
