"For fans of All the Light We Cannot See and Orphan Train, the author of the "thought-provoking" (Library Journal, starred review) and "must-read" (PopSugar) novel The Gilded Years crafts a captivating tale of three young people divided by the horrors of World War II and their journey back to one another. During the turbulent months following the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor, twenty-one-year-old Emi Kato, the daughter of a Japanese diplomat, is locked behind barbed wire in a Texas interment camp, the victim of misfortune and America's new policies of fear. Plagued by fence sickness, her world changes when she meets Christian Lange, whose German-born parents were wrongfully arrested for un-American activities. Together, they live as prisoners with thousands of other German and Japanese families, but discover that young love can triumph over even the most unjust circumstances. When Emi and her mother are abruptly sent back to Japan, Christian enlists in the US Army, with his sights set on the Pacific front--and a reunion with Emi. Sent away for her safety, Emi lives out the war in a Japanese resort town where many in the foreign community have fled, including both Jews and Nazis. When she overhears a German officer boasting of the men he has murdered in Asia, fate brings Emi back to Leo Hartmann, the son of prominent Austrian Jews, now a refugee in Shanghai--her oldest friend and her first love. Fearing for his life, Emi is determined to find Leo. But will Christian's devotion be strong enough to stop her? Hurtled together by war, passion, and extraordinary acts of selflessness, the paths of these three remarkable young people collide as the fighting on the Pacific front crescendos. With her "elegant and extremely gratifying" (USA TODAY) storytelling, Tanabe paints a stunning portrait of a turning point in history"--… (mere)

Although I had this audio book for a couple years, I just finally got around to listening to it. It was actually very good. Very Sad in many ways on how the Japanese and the Germans were gathered up and sent to internment camps in the US during the war - A Japanese diplomat's daughter who had lived in many countries,, was living in the US at the time of the bombing of Pearl Harbor and her family was sent out of DC to a temporary housing hotel until they could be sent back to Japan & traded for US Diplomats - unfortunately Emmie got TB and was unable to travel back with her father; she and her mother could not stay at the hotel after the father was sent back to Japan and were then sent to an internment camp with other non americans waiting to be re-patrionated back to Japan and/or Germany - There she meets Christian, an american born of German parents who were also interned. The war united them and then separated them. Christian (American born) decided to join the US Military to avoid being deported with his parents Emmie back in Japan, is surviving barely while the town she is staying in is occupied by German Troops - finally the war is ended and she waits to hear if Christian, her teenage sweetheart survives or Leo her childhood Austrian sweetheart survives. It is a war story, a love story and a reminder of how families living in the United States were gathered up and put in camps to be deported during war. A lesson to remember. ( )

4.5 stars. Really enjoyed this book and the three characters. It's an unusual story of this time period but I appreciated it for that aspect. It was believable even when it seemed crazy that these things could be happening. ( )
