After some difficulty adjusting to life in America—and missing the son she had left behind in Japan—she comes to enjoy the cosmopolitan atmosphere of San Francisco, though she is disillusioned when she learns of the rampant anti-Japanese prejudice. Eventually, she and husband buy a bathhouse in Oakland, and they have six more children. They later sell the bathhouse and buy a flower nursery, which the children help with as they grow up. After the sudden death of her husband, World War II breaks out, and the family is forcibly removed and incarcerated at\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Tanforan_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Tanforan (detention facility)\">\n  Tanforan Assembly Center\n </a>\n and the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Topaz\" title=\"Topaz\">\n  Topaz\n </a>\n , Utah, concentration camp. Two of her sons serve in the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/442nd_Regimental_Combat_Team\" title=\"442nd Regimental Combat Team\">\n  442nd Regimental Combat Team\n </a>\n and several others\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Resettlement_in_Chicago\" title=\"Resettlement in Chicago\">\n  \"resettle\" in Chicago\n </a>\n . After the war, she returns to the farm with a son and daughter-in-law and visits a son wounded in the war in a nearby hospital. Along the way, she recounts various colorful characters she encounters, tells stories of children growing up and facing adulthood, and shares pieces of homespun philosophy with her grandchildren.\n</p>\n<p>\n Mori (1910–80) was one of the most acclaimed Japanese American short story writers and the first to publish a collection of stories,\n <i>\n  Yokohama, California\n </i>\n , in 1949. He incorporates several pieces written and published during and shortly after the war into this, his only published novel; these include\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/The Man with the Bulging Pockets (short story)\" title=\"The Man with the Bulging Pockets (short story)\">\n   The Man with the Bulging Pockets\n  </a>\n </i>\n (1944),\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/The Remembered Days (short story)\" title=\"The Remembered Days (short story)\">\n   The Remembered Days\n  </a>\n </i>\n (1949),\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Join Me in Laughter (short story)\" title=\"Join Me in Laughter (short story)\">\n   Join Me in Laughter\n  </a>\n </i>\n (1950), and\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Homecoming (short story)\" title=\"Homecoming (short story)\">\n   Homecoming\n  </a>\n </i>\n (1952). Many aspects of the story are seemingly autobiographical. Like the parents in the book, Mori's were from Hiroshima and also owned a bathhouse and nursery. Mori had a brother wounded while serving in the 442nd, and one of the sons in the book aspires to be a writer. Mori dedicates\n <i>\n  Women from Hiroshima\n </i>\n to his mother.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\">\n <b>\n  Authored by\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n   Brian Niiya\n  </a>\n  , Densho\n </b>\n</div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n Niiya, Brian\n</div>\n<p>\n Might also like\n <i>\n  Unfinished Message: Selected Works of Toshio Mori\n </i>\n by Toshio Mori;\n <i>\n  Seventeen Stories and Other Stories\n </i>\n by Hisaye Yamamoto;\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Enemy Alien (book)\" title=\"Enemy Alien (book)\">\n   Enemy Alien\n  </a>\n </i>\n by Kiyo Hirano\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.100 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.100 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 305/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2123/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 6464/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1411/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 3/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:4172-0!*!0!*!*!5!* and timestamp 20180627004118 and revision id 28973\n -->\n",
