Hana Kato and her family are nearing the end of their confinement in a WWII Japanese American internment camp. Her beloved Papa has been taken to prison, and Hana works hard to keep the family together until he can join them in preparation for their release.
It’s 1945 in Grand Peak, Wyoming. After three years in a desolate internment camp, Hana Kato’s family receives the news they’ve longed for: all internees will soon be released! But the promise of freedom doesn’t come soon enough for Hana’s beloved father, who is taken to prison. Now Hana struggles to keep the family together, and must sort through feelings for two men—one Caucasian, one Japanese. How can she help her family endure turmoil and unthinkable tragedy as they prepare for life outside the barbed wire fence? How can she do any of this, when the government and the God she trusted seemed to have abandoned them?
“Jan pens an intriguing women’s fiction wrapped in a rich tapestry of a historical setting that few know much about. I was hooked from the start and found it hard to put the book down. I so appreciated her attention to detail and research and know the readers will as well.”
–Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of over 100 novels including the Brides of Seattle and Lone Star Brides series
