Ironically, none were chosen from Hawaii to be interned…after all these were islands that had been attacked by Japan. Logic was a stranger to Washington D.C. thinking in those days. However, Marshall Law was declared throughout the islands of Hawaii.Following much research including personal interviews with internees and reading everything I could find on the subject, I attempted to set down a basic history in story form.

Using an American Japanese point of view I chose to have my main characters live in the US Internment camps constructed for one purpose, to house those of yellow skin while the war in the Pacific continued.The news media of the time turned a blind eye to this Internment Camp event. Most Americans never knew what occurred…indeed refuse to believe such a travesty ever happened even today. Statements still abound in the older set “They got what they deserved” even though those of yellow skin had nothing to do with Pearl Harbor.
