This vivid account of a Japanese-American woman's imprisonment at the Heart Mountain Relocation Camp during WWII takes the form of a dialogue between the once-imprisoned grandmother and the author, who is her granddaughter. Narrator Emily Woo Zeller does an extraordinary job of varying the voices in the dialogue without losing the intimacy of the story. Her delivery is well paced and easy to understand. The author’s grandmother was not only a prisoner but also a Japanese-American, a woman, a new bride, and a mother. All of these facets of her identity, together, shaped her experience and come through in her memories. F.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2012]
