"Keiko's Journey" is a rare, first-person look at a young girl caught in the collision of tradition and love. The setting is Japan in the waning days of WWII, yet family secrets, domestic violence and the strength of a mother's love tell a universal tale of overcoming hardship, offering hope to the next generation." Lori Matsukawa - KING 5 News Anchor and Reporter
"This engaging book tells the story of a post-WWII Japan that is rarely portrayed in history books. Three generations of Japanese-Americans (Issei, Nisei, and Sansei) experienced first-hand what took place during the war and also suffered the aftermath while rebuilding their lives in America. As a young girl, Keiko takes the reader through an emotional account of how this series of events painfully impacted her life and those she loved. In spite of this unfortunate chapter in history, she reveals how she turned a negative set of circumstances into a positive life experience through forgiveness, hard work, and persistence."
