The Legend of Fire Horse Woman by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston [in AsianWeek]

Legend of Fire Horse WomanFinally, the first (and much awaited!) novel from the co-author of Farewell to Manzanar, the classic memoir of the internment experience (written with hubby James Houston). Legend captures three generations of Japanese American women, led by proud, regal Sayo, who is sent from Japan to marry in America at the turn of the 20th century. Forty years later, she is interned with her daughter and teenage granddaughter, and in spite of their physical confinement, each of the three women find a sense of freedom and release that empowers not only themselves, but each other, as well.
