AN EXHILARATING SAGA OF A JAPANESE AMERICAN FAMILY DURING WWII. Three brothers find their lives turned upside down when they are caught in the cataclysm of war. Eldest brother, Akira Omura, is stranded in Japan and forced to fight against the country of his birth. Complicating matters is a love triangle with Akira, his beautiful fiancée, and two other men. In America, wartime hysteria sends younger brothers Tad and Danny to internment camps. They traverse oceans and even wider chasms of prejudice, hatred, and separation from loved ones, risking their lives to seek freedom and hope for the future.
