Blog Tour - How Much Do You Love Me


About the bookLovers James and Keiko marry quickly before James goes to World War II and Keiko to an internment camp. Sixty years later their daughter Kazuko, born in the camps, uncovers a secret that could overwhelm the family. Discover the very definition of human love and self-sacrifice in this saga of war, mystery, and romance.

My Review: Keiko Armstrong was a beautiful young Japanese woman living in Oregon when life changed for her forever, the exact day it changed was December 7, 1941, the day Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese. The Japanese living in America, and especially along the west coast, were seen as potential traitors working for the Japanese. Because of this, they were rounded up and sent to internment camps. Keiko and James decided to marry quickly before James headed for his service in the war and Keiko headed with her family to an internment camp. 


This is the second book I've read this year about this period in history. I am amazed at the terrible conditions that the Japanese, many of them born in America so they were technically citizens, faced. I am amazed at the way they faced these conditions with dignity, courage and strength. I really enjoyed this book. I loved Keiko, I loved how you were able to see the young woman through her eyes, but also through the eyes of her daughter, Kazuko who was born in the internment camp. I loved James, their love story is beautiful. I really enjoyed the mystery that Kazuko and her younger brother Patrick find and also figure out. This book is one you won't want to miss for many reasons!
