“Jaime Ford discovers more rich history in Seattle's International District, this time in the Depression years preceding the WWII era he so beautifully revealed in Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. Readers will embrace young William and his beautiful mother, forced to surrender him to an orphanage, and nurture hope that they can reunite and overcome poverty, racism, and their family's tragic past.
