During the turbulent months following the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor, twenty-one-year-old Emi Kato, the daughter of a Japanese diplomat, is imprisoned in a Texas interment camp. She feels hopeless until she meets Christian Lange, whose German-born parents were wrongfully arrested for un-American activities. Together, they discover that love can bloom in even the bleakest circumstances. When Emi and her mother are abruptly sent back to Japan, Christian enlists in the US Army, with his sights set on the Pacific front--and, he hopes, a reunion with Emi--unaware that her first love, Leo Hartmann, the son of wealthy Austrian parents and now a Jewish refugee in Shanghai, may still have her heart. Fearful of bombings in Tokyo, Emi's parents send her to a remote resort town in the mountains. Cut off from her family, struggling with growing depression and hunger, Emi repeatedly risks her life to help keep others safe--all while wondering if the two men she loves are still alive. As Christian struggles to adapt to life as a soldier, his unit pushes its way from the South Pacific to Okinawa, where one of the bloodiest battles of the war awaits them. Meanwhile, in Japanese-occupied Shanghai, Leo endures the squalor of the Jewish ghetto, until a confrontation with a Nazi officer threatens his life. For each man, Emi Kato inspires courage against all odds.
