Under the Silk Hibiscus

Aug 20 Written by 

Under the Silk Hibiscus is an inspirational novel set in Heart Mountain, Wyoming, a WWII internment camp for Japanese-Americans.  Told from the view point of 15-year-old Nathan, this is a story of war, prejudice, betrayal, love, and forgiveness. Nathan fights internal battles while he and his family are sent off to a camp.  The love for one woman, a singer named Lucy, keeps him hopeful that one day he will win her heart.



Alice J. Wisler -I'm the author of six contemporary and historical novels, one devotional on coping with loss, and three independently-published cookbooks of memory.  Two of my novels were Christy Award Finalists. I've also been published by Chicken Soup for the Soul, Guideposts, and Blue Mountain Art.

Passionate about writing through loss and grief, I teach writing workshops online and at conferences across the country. "Writing the Heartache" is the name of one of my most popular workshops, as well as the name of one of my my three blogs.  In honor of my son, I founded Daniel's House Publications, an organization to help fellow bereaved parents.

I'm active with The Compassionate Friends and Bereaved Parents/USA, and Cure, a research center for childhood cancer. I live in Durham, North Carolina, with my husband, one energetic boxer, and three children.
