May 1, 2019 carries the burdens and celebrations of the 75th anniversary of the 442nd Regiment heading off to fight in World War II. The 442nd was made up of the Japanese American men taken out of internment camps all over the west coast; they fought valiantly at home and in Europe to prove their loyalty to the US. Award-winning author and retinal surgeon Andrew Lam releases Repentance (Tiny Fox Press) on that commemorative day. The novel tells of Daniel Tokunaga and the journey he goes on to discover his father’s connection to the 442nd during World War II. Answers unravel as the Department of Defense investigates a horrible mishap that happened in a battle against the Germans in France, and Daniel searches for the truth behind his family’s catastrophic past. "Suspenseful, touching, and beautifully written." --Margaret George, New York Times best-selling author of Elizabeth I France, October 1944. A Japanese American war hero has a secret. A secret so awful he'd rather die than tell anyone--one so entwined with the brave act that made him a hero that he's determined never to speak of the war. Ever.
