image   China Diaries: A saga of the days in China just before Pearl Harbor. Not Young Adult   but a wonderful story for the more mature. The bulk of the novel takes place in the latter part of 1941 when the Japanese bombed the Western Coast of China including Hong Kong and the many islands in the Pacific (Pearl Harbor, Wake, Guam, etc). Imperial Japan was intent on a holocaust in Asia equal to Hitler's attempt to exterminate Europe's Jewish population. Against the Asian backdrop of terror, protagonist Alex Cannon, a Pan Am Clipper Pilot, meets Anna, a Russian émigré. They fall in love, marry and flee the Japanese onslaught.
