Alice began her life as a migrant worker in California.  When she married, she and her husband moved to Seattle and opened a business.  But then World War II broke out and all the Japanese Americans living on the west coast were forced to leave their homes and were relocated away from the coast.   The government was afraid that they held allegiance to Japan and would try to help the Japanese war effort.  Alice and Mark were given the opportunity to work on a farm rather than move to the camp.  They jumped at the chance.  This is the story of Alice who believed that hard work would bring success.
