Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Hawaii, 1944. The Pacific battles of World War II continue to threaten American soil, and on the home front, the bonds of friendship and the strength of love are tested. Violet Iverson and her young daughter, Ella, are piecing their lives together one year after the disappearance of her husband. As rumors swirl and questions about his loyalties surface, Violet believes Ella knows something. But Ella is stubbornly silent. Something--or someone--has scared her. And with the island overrun by troops training for a secret mission, tension and suspicion between neighbors is rising. Violet bands together with her close friends to get through the difficult days. To support themselves, they open a pie stand near the military base, offering the soldiers a little homemade comfort. Try as she might, Violet can't ignore her attraction to the brash marine who comes to her aid when the women are accused of spying. Desperate to discover the truth behind what happened to her husband, while keeping her friends and daughter safe, Violet is torn by guilt, fear and longing as she faces losing everything. Again."--

    Ackerman's WWII novel is a close-up look at how wartime chaos affects a tight-knit group of women living on Hawaii in 1944 at the height of Pacific combat. As told through the eyes of Violet Iverson and her daughter Ella, the war touches the Iverson family in an unusual way: through the mysterious disappearance of Herman, Violet's husband. As Violet and Ella search for answers about Herman's disappearance, the ongoing war interrupts with new tensions. The residents of their once-sleepy Hawaiian community begin to turn on each other, divided by race when Japanese neighbors are sent to internment camps. The arrival of American soldiers brings even more activity, enforcing curfews and running drills on the island terrain. But some of the soldiers' disruptions are welcome, as families reunite and life is celebrated. One soldier in particular—handsome and earnest Sergeant Stone—presents the opportunity of new love for Violet. Her journey overcoming her trials and grief through friendship, family, and romance is a story of strength and perseverance. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
