Overview

Their friendship is suspect, their romance a scandal, and their marriage would be illegal.

Mennonite Annie Penner and Donald Nakamura, a Japanese-American, meet in college and feel pulled towards one another. Their fragile relationship is shattered by the sudden attack on Pearl Harbor and the government forcing the Japanese into internment camps.

When the war ends, Donald returns a war hero. But all his medals, ribbons of honor, and years of respect in the local community are not enough to save his romance with Annie from stinging prejudice, clashing cultures, and unjust laws.

Amidst it all, they struggle to continue believing that a God who works in mysterious ways will act on their behalf.

Wilma Wall was born in Shonghong, South China, to missionary parents from the Mennonite Brethren church. She lived there until civil war broke out and her family was forced to return to the United States, shortly before World War II began.
