Abstract:

San Poedro island, north of Puget Sound, is a place so isolated that no one who lives there can afford to make enemies. But in 1954 a local fisherman is found suspiciously drowned, and a Japanese American named Kabou Miyamoto is charged with his murder. In the course of the ensuing trial, it becomes clear that what is at stake is more than one man's guilt. For on San Piedr, memory grows as thickly as cedar trees and the fields of ripe strawberries- memories of a charmed love affair between a white boy and the Japanese girl who grew up to become Kabou's wife.
