HARVEST THE WIND
A novel

By Toni Morgan

In 1943, Keiko Ugawa and her family are taken from their home in Portland, Oregon, to an internment camp in south-central Idaho where they are forced to live with nearly 10,000 other Japanese-Americans in hastily built tarpaper-covered barracks surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards. She is frustrated with her family and the others for acting like sheep, and angry with her country for treating her like an enemy. Not far from the camp, Virginia Franconi lives on her family farm. When the government finally allows internees to leave the camp and work in the nearby fields, Keiko and Virginia meet. The two women, whose lives have been so different, become lifelong friends, sharing their innermost secrets, their loves, in some cases hidden even from themselves, their prejudices.

 

 

Toni came home to Oregon from a summer as an exchange student in Denmark knowing two things: she loved history, and she loved traveling and meeting new people.  Her parents collected early-American antiques. By their measure, anything over 75 years of age qualified.  The house of Toni’s host family in Denmark was 400-years-old, and the church where her host-father preached was 800-years-old. She saw where battles had been fought and where Danes had lived ten centuries before she was born. It was a revelation. Her writing career began with that trip, keeping the editor of her hometown paper apprised of all she saw.  A former NYT editor, he convinced her that she should continue writing.  Although a west-coaster by birth, marriage, and preference, Toni has lived in many places, including nearly four years in Japan. That rich experience led her to write Echoes from a Falling Bridge, Harvest the Wind, and Lotus Blossom Unfurling.
