The first is a brief overview of Iwao and Hanaye Matsushita's lives, from their respective childhoods and marriage in Japan, to their immigration to the United States in 1919, to their separation and then reunion during the war, and finally their lives after the war. Iwao and Hanaye were both well-educated and arrived in the U.S. with considerable resources, making their process of settling into life in Seattle distinct from that of many immigrants. Active in the Seattle Camera Club and frequent hikers, they enjoyed a busy social life. Iwao eventually found employment with Mitsui, then the Japanese Chamber of Commerce; it was largely these connections that led to his arrest by the FBI on the evening of <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\",_1941\" title=\"December 7, 1941\">December 7th</a>, and his detention in a number of immigration centers before being sent to <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Fort Missoula (detention facility)\">Fort Missoula</a> along with other Issei community leaders. \n</p><p>The second section is a compilation of letters Iwao and Hanaye sent to each other during the two-year period they were separated. These letters provide valuable insight into multiple aspects of life for Issei during World War II. Iwao writes about life in a Department of Justice camp, including living near Italian prisoners of war, taking up new hobbies to pass the time, and observations about Issei's efforts to organize self-government. Hanaye reveals the uncertainty and anxiety that Issei women whose husbands had been arrested by the FBI faced in the months leading up to being incarcerated. She shares with her husband her frustrations and irritations with living in <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Puyallup (detention facility)\">Puyallup</a> and <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Minidoka\">Minidoka</a>; she becomes depressed and stops writing for a time. Eventually Iwao is released to Minidoka, and the couple are reunited. They return to Seattle once the exclusion order is lifted.  \n</p>\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Author_Background\">Author Background</span></h2>\n<p>Louis Fiset is a professor in University of Washington's School of Medical Education who oversees a program that trains native Alaskans to perform dentistry in remote villages.

In particular, reviewers commented on the Fiset's meticulous overview of the organization and administration of Department of Justice internment camps like the one in which Iwao was detained, as well as the in-depth description of the censorship process inmates and detainees had to navigate while corresponding with friends and loved ones. Reviewers also praised the volume for containing ample primary sources from the time period that illuminate the daily challenges of living in such places. \n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Emily Anderson\">Emily Anderson</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Anderson, Emily</div>\n<p>Might also like <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Family Torn Apart: The Internment Story of the Otokichi Muin Ozaki Family (book)\">Family Torn Apart: The Internment Story of the Otokichi Muin Ozaki Family</a></i>, edited by Gail Honda; <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\",_Evening_Shadow:_Yamato_Ichihashi_and_His_Internment_Writings,_1942-1945_(book)\" title=\"Morning Glory, Evening Shadow: Yamato Ichihashi and His Internment Writings, 1942-1945 (book)\">Morning Glory, Evening Shadow: Yamato Ichihashi and His Internment Writings, 1942-1945</a></i> by Yamato Ichihashi; <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"A Brother Is a Stranger (book)\">A Brother Is a Stranger</a></i> by Toru Matsumoto\n</p>\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p><a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a>.\n</p>\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Reviews\">Reviews</span></h2>\n<p>Inouye, Charles Shiro. <i>Journal of Asian Studies</i> 58.3 (August 1999): 838-40.\n</p><p>Lee, Robert G. <i>Journal of American Ethnic History</i> 19.1 (Fall 1999): 116–17.\n</p><p>Mackey, Mike. <i>Pacific Northwest Quarterly</i> 90.2 (April 1999): 93–94.\n</p><p>Taylor, Sandra C. <i>Pacific Historical Review</i> 68.4 (November 1999): 680-81.\n</p><p>Toll, William. <i>Journal of American History</i> 85.4 (March 1999): 1650–52.\n</p><p>Walz, Eric. <i>The Western Historical Quarterly</i> 30.1 (February 1999): 97.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.084 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.088 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 306/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2047/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 5317/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1370/2097152 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:3681-0!*!0!!en!5!* and timestamp 20180204184109 and revision id 27580\n -->\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
