SPELLBINDING HISTORICAL FICTION. As she did so well in The Other Typist, Suzanne Rindell brings history to vivid life in Eagle and Crane—this time California in the days before World War II—as she tells the fascinating story of a group of men and women struggling to get by when the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor changes everything. This is evocative, appealing historical fiction we haven’t read before.
A TERRIFIC RETURN TO FORM. In Eagle & Crane, Rindellhas returned to the structure, focus, and pace that made The Other Typist a success.
AN EXPLORATION OF IMPORTANT ISSUES. Rindell pairs her storytelling with a compelling examination of the anti-Japanese sentiment during World War II and how it affected legal immigrants and their children born in the U.S.—issues that we are still confronting today.
AN AUTHOR WHO KNOWS THE LANDSCAPE. Rindell was raised in the part of California where Eagle & Crane is set, and the novel springs from stories she heard growing up of family friends who were forcibly interned at such camps.
STRONG PAPERBACK SALES TRACK. Since the success of The Other Typist, Suzanne’s novels have traditionally sold better in paperback, and her readers will be primed and excited for this edition.
