When her fiance is killed in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Jean Thornton experiences the grief, rage, and despair of a shattered life. Like many Americans, Jean is filled with hatred toward the Japanese living in the United States. So, when her uncle, Senator Al Moore, asks her to become a teacher-cum-spy at the Tule Lake internment camp, Jean sees her chance to help her country by uncovering the anti-American sentiments of the Japanese Americans living in the camp. However, the overwhelming love and forgiveness of the camp's occupants in the face of great injustice and oppression soon force Jean to confront her own prejudices and to reexamine her Christian faith. While the novel often falls back on cliches?e.g., "Has a kiss ever meant this much before in the whole of history?"?and stereotypes, Larson, who is a frequent writer for Guideposts, offers up a simple tale of God's reconciling love. For most collections.
