LOTUS BLOSSOM UNFURLING, by Toni Morgan

Following WWII, Japan is broken and in ruins, the people are starving. Nobuko Ito, a Japanese-American trapped in Japan by the war, and temporarily denied the right to return to her home in California, decides to remain in Japan after learning both her parents have died. Meanwhile, back in America, Keiko Ugawa and her father return to Portland, Oregon, after their release from Camp Minidoka in Idaho, where they spent three years behind barbed-wire with nearly ten-thousand other Japanese-Americans. Back in Portland, they face suspicion and ‘No Japs’ signs. In Idaho, Virginia Franconi marries John Sato, and together, with Virginia’s brother Marc, turn the old farm into one of the state’s biggest and most prosperous. Back in Japan, Nobuko is saddened by her failure to become pregnant. Masato surprises her with tickets to America, where they are to witness the marriage of Nobuko’s brother, Mako, to Keiko Ugawa, who had met at Camp Minidoka. LOTUS BLOSSOM UNFURLING fills in the years and unites the families from Morgan’s two previous novels, ECHOES FROM A FALLING BRIDGE and HARVEST THE WIND.

Toni Morgan 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.  (http://tonimorganbooks.com)
