Henry Lee is a 12-year-old Chinese boy who falls in love with Keiko Okabe, as 12-year-old Japanese girl, while they are scholarship students at a prestigious private school in World War II Seattle. Henry hides the relationship from his parents, who would disown him if they knew he had a Japanese friend. This is an old-fashioned historical novel that alternates between the early 1940s and 1984, after Henry's wife Ethel has died of cancer. Join us for what should be a wonderful discussion!
