Despues del suicidio de su hija mayor, Etsuko, una japonesa de cincuenta anos instalada en Inglaterra, rememora momentos de su vida. Quiza la explicacion de esta tragedia familiar se encuentre agazapada en aquel Japon de los anos cincuenta que se recuperaba de las heridas de la guerra y del traumatismo de la bomba atomica... En la memoria de Etsuko aparece de forma obsesiva, recurrente la imagen de otra mujer, Sachiko, una amiga y vecina que vivia sola con su hija Mariko. Dos personajes enigmaticos, a cual mas inquietante. La pequena Mariko parece haber vivido una cruel y dolorosa experiencia, que reduce a la nada, tanto para ella como para su madre, la esperanza de una vida tranquila, lejos de las ataduras de la rigida tradicion japonesa. La relacion ambigua de Etsuko con Sachiko y Mariko esta en el centro del enigma del libro.
