Before the war, they had run a successful restaurant in Gardena, California, but when they are caught up in the mass forced removal and incarceration of all West Coast Japanese Americans, they lose everything and end up in an American concentration camp. There, Hanako's father gives a conditional answer on the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Loyalty_questionnaire\" title=\"Loyalty questionnaire\">\n  loyalty questionnaire\n </a>\n , which is enough to get the family sent to\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Tule_Lake\" title=\"Tule Lake\">\n  Tule Lake\n </a>\n . He is branded a troublemaker, is separately interned, and decides that the family will go to Japan where they will live with his parents who are peasant farmers outside of Hiroshima. The novel begins with their voyage to Japan and follows their difficult life there. While Hanako and her five-year-old brother Akira face hunger, desperate orphan children, and the difficulties of learning a new language and culture, they are buoyed by their grandparents' love and their parents' devotion to them. But the family has to face a difficult decision as to what the best path for their future will be.\n</p>\n<p>\n While the novel takes place entirely after the war, it includes many references to life in the concentration camps. The family goes first to an unspecified\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Assembly_centers\" title=\"Assembly centers\">\n  assembly center\n </a>\n , then to\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Jerome\" title=\"Jerome\">\n  Jerome\n </a>\n , prior to Tule Lake.
