Summary (From the publisher):

Paints a portrait of the Japanese internment camps using a single family to evoke the deracination—both physical and emotional—of a generation of Japanese Americans. The story is told in five chapters, each executed from a different point of view: the mother receiving the order to evacuate; the daughter on the long train ride to the camp; the son in the desert encampment; the family’s return to their home; and the bitter release of the father after more than four years in captivity.
