Evalina Cassano’s life in an Italian-American family living in San Francisco in 1941 is ordinary until she falls in love with Taichi Hamasaki, the son of Japanese immigrants. Despite the fact that inter-racial marriage is illegal in California, Evalina and Taichi vow they will find a way to be together. But anti-Japanese feelings erupt across the country after Pearl Harbor, and Taichi and his family are forced to move to a Japanese-American internment camp. With tensions running high and their freedom on the line, Evalina and Taichi must hold true to their ideals and believe in their love to make a way back to each other against unbelievable odds.

When her best friend vanishes without so much as a good-bye, 18-year-old Piper Sail takes on the role of amateur sleuth in an attempt to solve the mystery of Lydia’s disappearance. Given that Piper’s tendency has always been to butt heads with high-society’s expectations of her, it’s no surprise that she doesn’t give a second thought to searching for answers to Lydia’s abduction from their privileged neighborhood. As Piper discovers that those answers might stem from the corruption strangling 1924 Chicago --- and quite possibly lead back to the doors of her affluent neighborhood --- she must decide if she’s willing to risk her life of privilege for the sake of the truth.
