Sakamoto tells the heart-wrenching story of how both sides of his family were deeply affected during WWII. Forgiveness is why he was born and can now tell the tale. His maternal grandfather was a Japanese POW; his paternal grandparents were thrown out of Vancouver and forced to work in rural Alberta. My criticism of this novel is that it sorely needs better editing since Sakamoto isn’t a professional writer. Of course, that adds some charm, but it also makes for some dips and curves, which detract from the powerful story.
