Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jane and Alexander Nakatani were living the American dream — success, a lovely home, and three wonderful sons. One day everything changed. Here, Molly Fumia takes on one of the most controversial issues of our time and writes one of the most powerful and poignant true stories you will ever read. Honor Thy Children begins and ends with a modern-day hero, a young man infected with the AIDS virus who, with passion and purpose, sets out to change the world. In between is the creation, demise, and unbelievable resurrection of a family.

Review:

"This is a story that will break your heart andmakeit whole again. It will bring you into realms of humanness and compassion you didn't know you had. It might even set you free to love in ways you've never loved before." Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking

Review:

"I have never read such a powerful story about a Japanese American family like this before. It relates a universal message of the deep love the Nakatanis' have for their children which transcended alienation and despair....It is the Nakatanis' enduring legacy of love and hope to the world." Ford H. Kuramoto, national director, National Asian Pacific American Families Against Substance Abuse

Review:

"Makes the unimaginable compelling, healing, and transformational." Melody Beattie, author of Journey to the Heart

Synopsis:

The brave and inspirational story of a Japanese-American family's triumph in the face of the death of their three children, two to AIDS and a third the victim of a tragic drive-by shooting. Honor Thy Children chronicles the creation, devastation, and remarkable resurrections of the Nakatanis, a family that journeys from unimaginable grief to healing.

Synopsis:

The inspirational account of a Japanese-American family's triumph in the face of the deaths of their three children--two from AIDS and the third a victim of a tragic drive-by shooting. Soon to be a documentary film by Francisco Leon. Photos.

"Honor Thy Children", is definately a great book that will touch your heart and allow you to feel the struggles and triumphs of a family during and after a tragedy. This book will give you a birds eye view of what and how it was for a young man with Aids to live in society today and how it affects the life of the people who love him. This book touches every obstacle and the journey to over come what life has in its hand.
