Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During Word War II, a family fnds life turned upside down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes (and suspicions) turn to the newcomers, the interlopers, the strangers.

This is her town as Rennie Stroud has never seen it before. She has just turned thirteen and, until this time, life has pretty much been what her father told her it should be: predictable and fair. But now the winds of change are coming and, with them, a shift in her perspective. And Rennie will discover secrets that can destroy even the most sacred things.

Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass is a riveting exploration of the darkest---and best---parts of the human heart. 

Synopsis:

During World War II, a family finds life turned upside-down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small town. Part thriller, part historical novel, this novel is a riveting exploration of the darkest--as well as the best--parts of the human heart.

This is a timeless book about human relations.
I love everything that Sandra Dallas writes. Any of her books would make an excellent nomination...this is very timely because of the reparations being made to the Japanese-Americans that were uprooted in 1942.

Insightful. Provoking. Complicated. Thoroughly researched and written from the point of view of a young girl, this book deals with what was happening in the United States during WWII. I'll be keeping an eye out for more work from Sandra Dallas.
