    I love CATS! I know Jeannie Woods and Lisa Moon from when they did plays years ago at the Studio Theater in Grass Valley. My last visit to CATS was Miss Saigon, which was fabulous!

    I’ve known a handful of people who lived through the WWII internment camps; some survived and carry(ied) a lot of pain while
    some were young enough to shed that dark period in their lives and thrive with little PTSD sort of issues. Would love to see this drama by CATS!

    This book was truly heartbreaking. You really get connected to the main characters. I recommend this book to anyone who has a heart fro true love stories.
