really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, mystery

This is the first of two books I read by this author over the summer. I read a review about it at the library and the historical setting caught my attention. It takes place in a little town in Colorado where a WWII Japanese internment camp has been established. I've never learned much about these camps other than the fact that they existed, so was interested in learning more. That aspect was enlightening, but I also found the main character Rennie and her family easy to relate to. They are a farming family in a small town. Her parents are good people trying to raise their family with traditional values. I found myself picturing this taking place in the farming area I grew up in. The quiet goodness of Rennie's father warms the heart. The feeling of community among the neighbors is just what I wish all communities could enjoy. They storyline's mystery was engaging and the resolution well-concealed until the end. One of the better books I read all summer.
