Intense sad and compelling. The research about the internment camps in the US during the second world war ended up in this excellent and touching book about two fictional characters, but in the end there is enough information to prove that many of the details that come up through the story are real and can easily be found online. I know, because I did that before I ended the book and found the extra information included by the Author, and immediately found a trove of data about Cristal City and other US Internment Camps. How appropriate that it would be published now, amidst all the controversy of immigrants detained at the borders or held under conditions of duress...

Definitely a good read, heartbreaking but crystal clear...
