Told in unusual first-person plural, this brief book is a haunting reminder of all that the Japanese endured as mail-order brides, as immigrants trying to find their way in America, as parents of children who assimilated more quickly than they did and as people forced into camps during WWII because they were universally suspected of subversive activities. These are collective experiences that will touch your heart.
