Can forbidden love blossom
amid the constraints of war?
A sweet World War II romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Shanna Hatfield
The moment the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, life shifted for Miko Nishimura. Desperate to reach the Portland Assembly Center for Japanese Americans, she's kicked off the bus miles from town. Every tick of the clock pushes her closer to becoming a fugitive in the land of her birth. Exhausted, she stumbles to her grandparents' abandoned farm only to find a dying soldier sprawled across the step. Unable to leave him, she forsakes all else to keep him alive.
After crashing his plane in the Battle of the Atlantic, the doctors condemn Captain Rock Laroux to die. Determined to meet his maker beneath a blue sky at his family home, he sneaks out of the hospital. Weary and half out of his mind, he makes it as far as a produce stand he remembers from his youth. Rather than surrender to death, Rock fights a battle of the heart as he falls in love with the beautiful Japanese woman who saves his life.
A poignant, sweet romance, Garden of Her Heart proves love can bloom in unlikely places even under the most challenging circumstances.

Shanna Hatfield's Garden of Her Heart
Stunning emotion packed read!!! It's about a romance
that seems impossible. This fantastic story is full of rich
historical detail combined with a sweet love story
It weaves exquisite detail into the finest story. This was
a vey authentic and well-researched story. I felt like I’d
slipped back in time to Portland, Oregon in 1942. It was
a time when native born American citizens of Japanese
heritage were treated with distrust and relocated to
detention center that were deplorable.
The major characters have a depth making them realistic
plus captivating. The author gets into the heads of the
characters so the reader understands the inner workings
of the characters.
Getting lost in the story, the reader will feel sympathy for
the characters, their plight, the love story while learning
about the people and their customs.
I volunteered to read this eBook. This to the author for
the eBook. My opinion on own.
