The Last Cherry Blossom is about a 12-year-old girl's life in Hiroshima during the last year of WWII. A shocking family secret is revealed right before her world is about to ignite and become a shadow of what it had been. When the atomic bomb is dropped, it is through her eyes that we witness the devastation and horror. Author Bio: Kathleen Burkinshaw resides in Charlotte, NC. She’s a wife, mom to a daughter in college (dreading the reality of being and empty nester-most of the time), and owns a dog who is a kitchen ninja. Kathleen enjoyed a 10+ year career in HealthCare Management unfortunately cut short by the onset of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). Writing gives her an outlet for her daily struggle with chronic pain. She has carried her mother’s story her whole life and feels privileged to now share it with the world. Writing historical fiction also satisfies her obsessive love of researching anything and everything.
