    Description1986, The Panama Hotel The old Seattle landmark has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made a startling discovery in the basement: personal belongings stored away by Japanese families sent to interment camps during the Second World War. Among the fascinated crowd gathering outside the hotel, stands Henry Lee, and, as the owner unfurls a distinctive parasol, he is flooded by memories of his childhood. He wonders if by some miracle, in amongst the boxes of dusty treasures, lies a link to the Okabe family, and the girl he lost his young heart to, so many years ago. WITH OVER A MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE, THIS CAPTIVATING DEBUT IS A STORY OF THE SACRIFICES ONE BOY MAKES FOR LOVE AND FOR HIS COUNTRY.

  • A Novel to Make you Think-And Feel5

    Wendy SEKULOFF I have just finished reading Hotel and was captivated till the last page. I loved it. The story switches from WW2 and 1986, the basis of which is a friendship that grows between the only two Asians at a "white" school, one Chinese (Henry) and one Japanese (Keiko). Anti-Japanese sentiment pulls them apart when the Japanese in Seattle are forced to leave for internment camps, despite many having been born in the US. This fictional story is based on historical fact, with apparently, according to the author's note at the end, the Hotel Panama is still standing these days. by Wendy SEKULOFF
