Synopsis: Michael Forrester takes us to Occupied Japan with him as a young airman with limited social skills, a spotty education ?? and an attitude. When he meets Tsuchino, a Japanese girl as determined and willful as she is beautiful, they fall in love and decide to get married. Unprepared for the resistance and prejudices of both their families and societies, they draw closer under the pressure, while an insensitive military bureaucracy twists every regulation in the book to pull them apart. In unadorned, straightforward language, Forrester then carries us along on their all-true, storybook journey. Tsuchino transforms him into an achiever, they rise to the highest levels of U.S. federal civil service, and build a software innovation into a high-tech company that makes them millionaires. Along with their remarkable life, they shine a new light on the contributions and achievements of thousands of brave women who left their native culture to face the unknown as war brides, on their way to becoming exemplary Americans.

Review: "...rich, historically fascinating document of the Japanese war bride experience... a wonderful contribution to history," -- Velina Hasu Houston, Ph.D., Professor of Theatre, resident playwright, and Director of Dramatic Writing at the University of Southern California School of Theatre

...a compelling narrative that gives readers history and insight into the little-known and understudied story of Japanese war brides.. " -- Regina F. Lark, Ph.D., UCLA Center for the Study of Women and Women's Studies Programs
