Young and in love, they were making plans for a future together when the Nazis invaded Vienna. By the time she and her mother landed at an internment camp, it had been months since Emi had heard from Leo. The loneliness she felt caused her to make what she was certain was a mistake: she fell in love with Christian Lange. College, followed by a life in industry: that was the plan for seventeen-year-old Christian, son of a German-born Milwaukee steel manufacturer. It was he who got them out of Vienna.
She deliberately focuses on less-explored stories such as the 11, Germans interned alongside the Japanese, the village of Karuizawa in Japan where many foreign citizens were detained during the war, and occupied Shanghai, which became an unlikely refuge for Jews who escaped east from Europe. Emi is the titular daughter, raised around the globe as her father is posted and reposted. In Austria she falls in love with Leo, and the romance becomes epistolary when her father is sent to Washington. When war breaks out the family is interred in Texas, where she meets Christian, the American-born son of German immigrants also incarcerated. They fall in love.
