Los Angeles, 1941.
Violinist Maddie Kern's life seemed destined to unfold with
the predictable elegance of a Bach concerto. Then she
fell in love with Lane Moritomo. Her brother's best friend,
Lane is the handsome, ambitious son of Japanese immigrants.
Maddie was prepared for disapproval from their families, but
when Pearl Harbor is bombed the day after she and Lane
elope, the full force of their decision becomes apparent. In
the eyes of a fearful nation, Lane is no longer just an
outsider, but an enemy.
When her husband is interned at a war relocation camp,
Maddie follows, sacrificing her Juilliard ambitions. Behind
barbed wire, tension simmers and the line between patriot
and traitor blurs. As Maddie strives for the hard-won
acceptance of her new family, Lane risks everything to prove
his allegiance to America, at tremendous cost.
Skillfully capturing one of the most controversial episodes
in recent American history, Kristina McMorris draws readers
into a novel filled with triumphs and heartbreaking loss--an
authentic, moving testament to love, forgiveness, and the
enduring music of the human spirit.
