This critically acclaimed World War II novel tells the story of Maddie Kern, an aspiring violinist who secretly elopes with her Japanese American boyfriend—the night before Pearl Harbor is bombed. When her beloved Lane is interned at a relocation camp, Maddie dares to remain at his side. Behind barbed wire, tension simmers and the line between patriot and traitor blurs. As Maddie strives for the hard-won acceptance of her new family, Lane enlists in the Military Intelligence Service to prove his allegiance to America, no matter the cost.
