I enjoyed this book very much. I was a young girl during World War II. I did not know about the camps until I was well into my adult life. At the same time I was reading this book, I was reading "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet" that was assigned by my local reading group. This book also was about the internment camps. I was sorry that Lane did not make it home to meet his daughter, but that is part of life. I felt the author did a great job developing the characters and building the story.
