From Library Journal:

When Japanese-Americans were relocated during World War II, about 10,000 were sent to Heart Mountain Relocation Camp in Wyoming. Ehrlich's first novel portrays the camp as it was seen by the ranchers and small-town residents who lived outside its gatespeople like Mckay, who runs the family ranch while his brothers fight in the Pacific and whose cook, Bobby Korematsu, ends up at Heart Mountain. It also portrays the diverse population of the camp, people swept away by the forces of history and an avalanche of racial prejudice. Author of poems, essays, and the highly praised The Solace of Open Spaces ( LJ 11/1/85)a paean to her adopted stateEhrlich here puts her considerable gifts to good use, expressing her love for the land and people of Wyoming in beautifully crafted prose. Dean Willms, Vail P.L., Col.

From Publishers Weekly:

This first novel builds itself around the WW II internment of some 100,000 Japanese-Americans. Ehrlich's assiduous research is evident, but, worthy as her intentions may be, her characters often are only wafer-thin. "The novel succeeds less as a full-blooded work of fiction than as a compassionate documentary," noted PW .
