by Augusta Trobaugh
Plume, September 2002
Salty Creek is a sleepy Georgia town where everyone knows everyone else’s business. Strangers rarely enter their midst. When the mysterious Mr. Oto arrives in the spring of 1939, he immediately becomes the talk of the town.
A quiet, unassuming Japanese man with a secret history of his own, Mr. Oto meets Sophie soon after arriving in Salty Creek and immediately falls in love with her. Sophie, having lost her true love during World War I, spent her youth caring for her mother and maiden aunts. Now that they are gone, she has resigned herself to a lonely, passionless existence. That all begins to change as she finds herself drawn to Mr. Oto.
When the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor, Mr. Oto’s newfound life comes under siege and Sophie must decide how much she is willing to risk for a future with the man who has brought such joy into her life.
