Grief comes in many forms. In my debut historical novel, a Japanese American family experiences many traumatic losses that affect them both physically and emotionally.
The following excerpt is from my historical fiction book, Courageous Footsteps A WWII Novel. The book reveals the hardships and injustices, two teenagers, Yasu and Haro Sakamoto, and their parents endure when they are imprisoned in a U.S. Japanese interment camp during the war. The book begins with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Japan's attack sets into motion serious, life changing consequences for the Sakamoto family.
A black four-door sedan parked in front of the house, and two men wearing double-breasted suits and fedora hats got out. They pushed open the gate and marched up the sidewalk. Yasu held her breath as her father moved slowly toward the front door.
Kenta growled and pawed the door as Yasu edged down the hallway. She peered into the living room, trying to catch a glimpse of the strangers.
