I enjoy most of Danielle Steel's books but this one was different for me. It was more than just a story I was reading....it made me feel as if I were living the story with the main character, Hiroko. This book sent me on a roller coaster ride of emotions such as love, sadness, fear and even sometimes hate. I was even surprised to find myself crying at times.
This was perhaps the only time I would really have an insight to what this time was like in our American History and to know how it felt to be a stranger turned enemy in a foreign land where all you want is to go home or to be accepted and realize that neither is going to happen.
