Ellen Booher | 1 comments Read about 15-20 yrs ago. An American girl and Japanese man meet at college, fall in love, and marry on the eve of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Threatened with internment camp, they go to Japan and experience the war with his family in Tokyo. His name begins with a k? Maybe Kenji? There is an older brother who is a brutal, sadistic officer in the Japanese army, and a younger brother who can't wait to be old enough to fight. He eventually becomes a Kamikazie.

Ellen, can you add a description (and genre) to your Topic header? This will help others. If you're on the desktop site, click "Edit" near the top beside your header.

Kaion (kaionvin) | 389 comments Sounds a little like Color of the Sea.

But if not, it could be on one of these lists?

Michael Watson | 136 comments Plot isnt an exact match, but could this be Bridge to Sun by Gwen Terasaki? This isn't a work of fiction, BTW.
