What am I really doing here? What does it mean to live?

What are we living for?...I wonder if man can ever lose his loneliness? The wind is howling.Ayako Miura is a well-known Japanese novelist and poet. Her first novel received first prize in a Japanese national competition in 1964. In a later novel, Shiokari Pass (published in English in 1974), the Christianity she expressed aroused intense interest among her readers. The present book, partly an answer to that interest, is an account of her own life in Japans turbulent postwar period.

It explains her pathway to Christ and helps Western readers understand from the inside much of the Japanese attitude to life.But more than this, we see Christ himself, patiently leading, prompting, pursuing, revealing himself as Ayako-san argues and fights for life. In the deepest and starkest crises of life, of human love and relationships, in serious illness and physical weakness, in suffering and loss: in all of this God reveals himself to her.
