Terasaki, a young woman from Tennessee married a Japanese diplomat in 1931. She traveled with him to postings in Japan, China, Cuba and finally the USA in the summer of 1940. They were there when the attack on Pearl Harbor took place resulting in their internment and eventual exchange and trip to Japan. There Terasaki with her young daughter spent the War caring for her ill husband while trying to find food and medicine to keep them alive. Interestingly, when they arrived in Japan in late 1942, the country was already desperately short of food and basic items such as soap which illustrated just how unprepared they country was for war.
A large portion of the book covers life in Japan during the War and how this American woman survived in what one would think would be a very hostile environment. ( )
