August 2013 "Presents the stories of six Japanese mail-order brides whose new lives in early twentieth-century San Francisco are marked by backbreaking migrant work, cultural struggles, children who reject their heritage, and the prospect of wartime internment."
What happens to the mail order brides? Highly lyrical, and poetry lovers will probably appreciate it most.
