Snow Falling on Cedars

On the last page of the novel a reference is made to a new arrest. Our book discussion has no idea what this means. Who arrested and why?

This is after the trial is over and the accused set free.

The part that you are talking about is a reference to the arrest of Kabuo. It is the end of Ishmeal's retelling, not a new arrest.


Look to page 454 (Vintage Contemporaries paper back edition) "Ishmael Chambers tried to imagine the truth of what had happened. He shut his eyes and exerted himself to see everything clearly"
