I thought this book was a wonderful portrayal of four different cultures during the WWII Era. It was a lovely love story also but that was not what struck me first about this book. It was a good study of the attitudes and prejudices held by Americans, Chinese, Japanese and African Americans during the tumultuous events occurring during the war and as a result of the attack on Pearl Harbor. It gave me a lot of insight as to how each group was affected by the war and how they reacted as a result. I would recommend it especially for those of you, who like me, enjoy historical fiction.
I have now started Calico Joe by John Grisham. I am about half way through and I had to go online to see if it was a true story. It is written that well.
