The Waiting Years by Fumiko Enchi

The Waiting Years - Fumiko Enchi, John Bester

A rather depressing tale of a Japanese woman's experiences in the late 18th and 19th centuries, beginning with the task of finding her husband a mistress. Much family drama throughout. The translation was a bit awkward, but the story was interesting.
