The Most Beautiful Village in the World by Yutaka Kobayashi

His family raises fruit to sell at the market.  They sing while they harvest it.  Life in their village is good.

Museyon and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 1st.

This year the younger brother gets to go the village with his father.  His brother is away, fighting the war.  After they have sold their goods, his father buys them a lamb to take home.

While it may be the most beautiful village in the world, when winter comes the war claims the village and there is a village no more.  The Afghanistan war is unforgiving.
