Description:"At a time when history might be repeating itself, this story is important." ~ Amazon review. During World War Two, fifteen-year-old Nathan and his family are sent to Heart Mountain, an internment camp in Wyoming for Japanese-Americans. Nathan's one desire, along with hoping that the beautiful singer Lucy will notice him, is to protect the family's gold pocket watch, a family heirloom brought over from Japan. His attempts are noble, but the watch is stolen. Nathan’s actions to get the watch returned cause more turmoil for his family. Struggling to make sense of his life in "the land of freedom," Nathan discovers truths about his family, God, forgiveness, and the girl he loves.
