When he peeks, he discovers she is a crane and she flys off. The lesson in the book is patience/5(10).

        With The Crane Wife, he brings all of those talents to a story for adults, and the result is a viscerally beautiful, subtly magical and instantly memorable realistic fairy tale that will linger in your brain. A mysterious woman brings romance into the life of a staid shopkeeper in this magical new novel. The Crane Wife is loosely based on a Japanese folk tale that concerns a crane, an arrow, a beautiful woman, and a whole lot of clandestine weaving. The record's spirited opener and namesake picks off almost exactly where Picaresque left off, building slowly off a simple folk melody before exploding into some serious Who power : Capitol.
