    Epub posthd.pro ¶ Color of the Sea Kindle ↠ Color of eBook Ä color mobile, Color of mobile, Color of the Sea PDFThis is a touching beautifully written novel about two American youths of Japanese descent as they deal with the transition into adulthood as well as integrating the culture of their parents and the culture in which they are living NeverthelessI had difficulty pursuing it because it's set in the 1930s and 1940s I knew what was coming and I resisted reading it because of the historical context and the effects I knew it would have on these people I had come to like However the author handles the horrifying events associated with World War II with wrenching honesty a deft gentleness and a profound respect for his characters and their dilemmas Once the novel actually got to December 1941 and I was into the part I'd worried about I found it fascinating than ever and finished it in one sitting from there Definitely recommended A good book group novel too
