Picture Bride–A Novel Product Description:

Woman of silk and steel: A family saga of Hawaii’s Japanese immigrants.

From the moment we meet Haru, we fall in love with this proud girl of silk and steel. To escape being sold into prostitution in turn-of-the-century Japan, Haru takes refuge in a Buddhist temple, but happiness there is fleeting. Betrayed by her best friend, she flees to Hawaii, a strange new world where the young picture bride finds herself with a husband who doesn’t want her, and surrounded by a widespread distrust of Japanese immigrants. As Haru’s marriage flourishes then falters, she emerges as a strong-minded community leader. Having once pledged to produce sons to fight for the emperor, she dedicates herself to raising American children loyal to the Stars and Stripes. From the shrines of Kyushu to the shores of the Territory of Hawaii, Picture Bride is the sweeping saga of Japanese immigrants who survived – and thrived – against great odds.
