Snow Falling on Cedars

Snow Falling on Cedars - David Guterson This is one of my all time favorite novels read sometime back in the 90s before my Goodreads.com days. The following short review is from the PageADay Book Lover's Calendar for today:

This was one of the first popular novels to explore the lasting effects of the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. When the novel opens, it’s 1954 and memories of World War II are strong in an island community off the coast of Washington State. When a Puget Sound fisherman is found drowned, another fisherman, who is Japanese American, is accused of the crime. This compelling story combines courtroom drama with memories of a particularly shameful chapter in American history.
