I enjoyed this book. It was a tender portrayl of love and friendship through a time when some Americans were suspicious and distrustful of their foreign born neighbors. The main character, Henry, is an infinitely patient middle aged man who reflects back on the early years of WWII and the way the Japanese in America were treated. His relationships with his father, his wife, his son and his friend are touching and heartbreaking. Based on true incidents at the time of WWII, this is a book worth reading.
