This is a story of WWII from a different perspective, the story of the Japanese internment in California. A love story between Lane (Japanese American) and Maddie (white) that takes them from 1941 until the end of the war. This is a part of history that is very seldom discussed and taught in school. Not only discussing the problems of being Japanese but also of being a mixed race relationship during that time. A beautiful story of both families. Highly recommend.

This book really took me to another place. I was sad to say goodbye to the characters at the end.
