    A little known truth

    This novel is very different from Ms Bolen's Regency novels - but don't let the 20th century setting or the subject stop you from reading about an extremely negative time in U.S. history. The treatment of American citizens of Japanese descent following Pearl Harbour is a damning example of what happens when rampant racism and overzealous patriotism are mixed to deny humanity in the midst of wartime paranoia. There are literally two halves to this novel. The first half starts in 1937 and ends with news of Pearl Harbour. The luxury and hedonism of this time is markedly juxtaposed with the events of the second half and the dark days faced in internment. A nation's history cannot be marked only by its highs; this novel is well worth reading because the lows must not be denied and those who suffered through them deserve to be honoured.
