Violinist Maddie Kern's life was predictable and orderly until she fell in love with Lane Moritomo, the ambitious son of Japanese immigrants. Maddie expects their families' disapproval. But when Pearl Harbour is bombed the day after she and Lane elope, her new husband is no longer viewed as just an outsider, but as an enemy. When Lane is interned at a war relocation camp, Maddie follows, sacrificing her Juilliard ambitions. Behind barbed wire, tension simmers. As Maddie strives for the acceptance of her new family, Lane tries to prove his allegiance to America, at devastating cost. As in her remarkable debut, Kristina McMorris draws readers into a world of triumphs and loss in this beautiful novel - an authentic testament to love, forgiveness, and the enduring music of the human spirit.
