A dramatic chapter of American history comes vividly to life in this evocative tale of a mother and daughter navigating the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor. On a beautiful December day, young Marty Langsmith's life explodes into flames. Evacuated with her mother, April, to the mainland, Marty's new world is haunted by nightmares of the lion in the lei shop, a creature fabricated by a neighbor that's said to devour happy children. Meanwhile April, powerless to shield her daughter from the devastation of the Japanese attack and the painful uncertainty of life without her deployed army father, is caught between her own longing for the past and her hope for the future.

Spanning the tumultuous war years, The Lion in the Lei Shop is a poignant, illuminating tale of two women bound by love and sorrow, twin sentinels mourning the loss of a nation's innocence and struggling to build a new life without the father and husband they fear may never return.
