Publisher's Summary

The bombing of Darwin by the Japanese in 1942 was Australia's Pearl Harbor. Faith and her brother Joe escape the devastation and chaos aboard Joe's island trading ketch, Faraway, along with Joe's lifelong friend Koko, an Australian born Japanese, fleeing internment.
They are soon separated by the fortunes of war and face their own personal battles against espionage and injustice. Joe in a special Army unit in the wilds of the Northern Territory against a covert brutal enemy, Koko in a POW camp against a society which seems to have deserted him and Faith against the machinations of a racist American officer intent on keeping the man she loves, Captain Dan Rivers, a Navaho Indian commissioned as a U.S. Army Air Force pilot.
