The attack on Pearl Harbour sends shock waves into the quiet rural world of Paula Harmon and Ken Nishimura. Their long-time friendship and the peace and safety of Ken’s farming family are threatened in the wave of anti-Japanese feeling and extreme government initiatives that follow. This novel gives the reader an immediate sense of how the range of responses from this global catastrophe affects the everyday lives of people.
