House of the Red Fish

by Graham Salisbury

Set during World War II, this sequel to the award-winning Under the Blood-Red Sun tells of the hardship and vicious prejudice suffered by Japanese Americans in Hawaii, but it also conveys a sense of community that cuts across race and generations.  In the story (which picks up where Blood Red Sun leaves off) Tomi’s Papa and Grandpa are still under arrest, and the paradise of Hawaii now lives in fear--waiting for another attack, while trying to recover from Pearl Harbor. As a Japanese American, Tomi and his family have new enemies everywhere, vigilantes who suspect all Japanese. Tomi finds hope in his goal of raising Papa’s fishing boat, sunk in the canal by the Army on the day of the attack. To Tomi, raising Papa’s boat is a sign of faith that Papa and Grandpa will return. It’s an impossible task, but Tomi is determined. For just as he now has new enemies, his struggle to raise the boat brings unexpected allies and friends.
