    Their love could not be broken.

    This is a story of friendship, war and a forbidden love which cannot be broken. The time is the beginning of WWII and the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The setting is an isle on the coast of Canada. Hayden and Chidori grew up together. They played together as children, became close friends as teens and fell in love as young adults. Now they are looking at college, but WWII comes along. Chidori is Japanese American and Hayden is Canadian. They start getting disapproving message from their parents and from some people in the community. There is talk of internment camps for Japanese Americans that live on the coast of Canada. No one can break the two up. Hayden goes to war to fight to end the war. He asks Chidori to wait for him and they both agree to wait for each other. Hayden's plane is shot down and he is captured and taken to a Nazi POW camp. The story tells of his time spent in the POW camp . He never receives a letter from Chidori and his mother never talks about her in the letters she sends. He keeps Chidori's picture with him at the camp. His friends help him as he has horrible nightmares every night. He is beaten, starved, and becomes depresses, but manages to hold on for Chidori. His story at the camp is very sad but the friendship with his fellow POW's is amazing. When he is liberated at the camp by the Russian's he returns home and finds that Chidori's family is no longer there and has been forced to leave. He is heartbroken and becomes very depressed. He searches and writes letters and tries to find where Chidori and her family have gone. When he has almost destroyed himself with alcohol and depression his mother confesses that Chidori wrote him and she kept the letters from him because she thought it was for the best. He reads the letters and goes to find Chidori. Does he find Chidori and do they get back together? Well you will have to read the book to find out. It is a great read and you will not be disappointed. I recommend the book I enjoyed it and I am sure you will as well. Thanks to Danielle R. Graham, Harper Collins One More Chapter, and NetGalley for allowing me to read and review an advance copy of the book.

    All We Left Behind

    Very interesting and touching story of love lost and found. Historical novels always make me sad as there is an element of truth and despair involved but the power of forgiveness always overcomes.
