Beginning with immigration and\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Plantations/\" title=\"Plantations\">\n   sugar plantations\n  </a>\n  , the novel ends in the World War II era where members of both families are among the Japanese Americans from Hawai'i who are interned.\n </p>\n <p>\n  The 262-page novel begins with a foreword by longtime\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/McKinley_High_School/\" title=\"McKinley High School\">\n   McKinley High School\n  </a>\n  principal\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Miles_E._Cary/\" title=\"Miles E. Cary\">\n   Miles E. Cary\n  </a>\n  and is divided into five sections: The Awakening; Hawaii—Gokuraku; Nihonmachi—Japanese Town; Honolulu Years; and The Onward Years. The story focuses on the family of Taro and Haruko Sumida, who immigrate from Yamaguchi prefecture, and their\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Nisei/\" title=\"Nisei\">\n   Nisei\n  </a>\n  daughter Alice. The Sumida's story is juxtaposed with that of the Noda family, the elder Noda being a Shinto priest from the same village in Yamaguchi. Nisei Jerry Noda becomes a surgeon in Hawai'i and ultimately marries Alice. With the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, both the Sumida and Noda patriarchs are arrested and interned. But while Taro Sumida is vouched for by white friends and subsequently released, the avowedly pro-Japan Noda is sent to internment camps in the continental U.S. for the duration of the war.\n </p>\n <p>\n  A\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Nisei/\" title=\"Nisei\">\n   Nisei\n  </a>\n  who was born in Hilo, Hawaii, Ota (1911–87) was living in Milwaukee at the time she wrote the book.
