A Moving Novel From an Award-Winning Author that Celebrates Friendship and Family

Played out against the backdrop of two critical eras of American history, this beautifully written story imparts powerful lessons of forgiveness and reconciliation that will linger long after the last page is turned.

Augie Schuler is desperate for love, the kind "normal" families provide. And when she meets Sunny Yamagata and her family, Augie knows she's found what she's looking for in spite of cultural differences. Together, the two girls pursue the fanciful dreams of youth--and a sometimes humorous search for God--beneath the bright California sun.

When the dark days of World War II and the Japanese internment camps tear them apart, they vow never to forget each other. Reunited years later, the two find themselves offering healing and hope as they triumph over the pain of their years apart.
