Liz Gilmore Williams tiptoed through girlhood to avoid her father’s inexplicable rages. Finding her parents’ wartime letters 33 years after his death, she mines them for clues to her dad’s temperament. They lead her to uncover spellbinding insights of Hawaii’s transition from island paradise to war zone, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and his combat duty on other Pacific battlegrounds. His black-and-white photos of the era further inspire her to discover his service in the army air force. Amid her quest, her beloved sister is diagnosed with cancer. When Liz spends time with her sister, she stumbles upon a shocking family secret that the letters also suggest: Her father had waged two wars―one with himself.
