Excerpt

gotten away from the horror of it yet, enough ever to step inside of a motor car; but I am going to get over that one of these days. Brakes are not all defective, and one must take one's risks."

"You just bet I would," said Donald. "Motoring is one of the greatest pleasures of modern life. I'll wager it makes some of the gay old boys, like Marcus Aurelius for example, want to turn over in their graves when they see us flying along the roads of California the way we do."

"What I was getting at," said Linda, "was a word of reply to the remainder of your indictment against me. Dad's income stopped with him, and household expenses went on, and war came, so there isn't enough money to dress two of us as most of the high school girls are dressed. Eileen is so much older that it's her turn first, and I must say she is not at all backward about exercising her rights. I think that will have to suffice for the question of dress but you may be sure that I am capable of wearing the loveliest dress imaginable

This book was an interesting coming-of-age love story set in California during the first part of the 20th century when there was much concern over the 'yellow peril'. I generally love anything by this author because of the sweet stories and extensive emphasis on nature. However, this particular book contains a lot of racisim and white supremacy (in a very toned down manner). After recently completing a college course in Japanese Imperialism, it was interesting to see a more personal look at how the anti-Japanese sentiment manifested itself in the US during this era. Remember, historically, the US placed American citizens of Japanese descent living on the West Coast in interment camps during WWII. Excellent plot, if you can put the racist sentiments in their historical context.
