Join hosts Nancy Reid & Lisa Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine and Park & Travel Magazine, for Big Blend Radio with award-winning surgeon-author Andrew Lam, who discusses his dramatic new novel “Repentance” that approaches the storied history of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team from a new and controversial angle.

Drawn from the heroic true story of a Japanese American regiment that fought in World War II and became the most decorated unit in U.S. military history, this poignant drama also shows the sorrows of the internment camps where American citizens of Japanese ancestry were imprisoned solely because of their race. “Repentance” is a swift, sweeping novel in which one family’s catastrophic past unfurls just as the foundation of their present lives begins to crack. What they learn is that the briefest of moments—a split-second of indecision—can echo across generations.

Featured music is “Captain America” by Nicki Kris. Thanks to JKS Communications for sponsoring this episode.
