Abstract:

This remarkable book is a tense courtroom drama, a poignant love story, and a haunting reflection on the delicate balance between the mind and heart. As a Japanese-American fisherman stands trail for murder on an island in Puget Sound, snow blankets the countryside. The whiteness covers the courthouse, but it cannot conceal the memories at work inside: the internment of Japanese-American during World War II, an unrequited love, and the ghosts of racism that still haunt the islanders.
