Acerca de


A tale of mothers, sisters, and daughters- a testament to women who overcame all odds and taught those who would follow how to find peace amidst chaos, and love amidst hate. It is the story of Sayo, born under the portentous Fire Horse sign in 1902. In Japan, no Fire Horse Woman could ever dream of marrying. It was a tragic sign, a ruinous birth date that occurred once every sixty years. Her secret kept safe by her loving mentor, the orphaned Sayo is married by proxy into the wealthy Matsubara family, and sent to join her husband in America. In California, 1942, this same woman- facing the sunset of her life- is sent to a Japanese internment camp with her daughter and granddaughter. This is her story- from one beginning to another.
