With World War II escalating, the Hayes sisters each find themselves in difficult
situations. The eldest, Cameron, is still in Russia, in love with a doctor whose
faith makes it difficult for their relationship to continue. In addition, she
has discovered some information leading to her half-brother and is determined
to follow this new lead, no matter how dangerous it is.

Newly married Blair travels to the Philippines to be with Gary, but with the bombing
of Pearl Harbor and the dangers in Manila, they can hardly work on their suffering
relationship. As she travels north to safety, Blair worries she will never see
Gary again. Will she be able to find the faith she needs? Will they finally be

Jackie and Sam (Yoshito) already had problems to contend with in their relationship
due to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Now with Japanese families being interned,
they may never see each other again.

but readers may be a little confused if they have not read the first book. The
pacing could have been turned up a notch as
