Change is sometimes subtle, small and quiet, like the first glimpse of a stranger that will become your best friend. And sometimes it is as unmistakable as a train wreck. Like many on that quiet Sunday morning, Russell was asleep when the bombs began falling on Pearl Harbor. Wailing sirens and thunderous explosions shook the entire house, jarring Russell awake. It was barely past sunrise, December 7, 1941. The day of infamy had come. Russell was stunned. He was wearing the same pajamas he'd gone to sleep in, lying in the same bed, in the same house, in the same city, but the entire world was suddenly a different place.

Painted against the backdrop of World War II, the story of Russell and Annette Horiuchi is nothing short of miraculous. While many are familiar with their work in the church and as award-winning educators, not as many know the twists and turns that brought them to this point. Here is the astounding story of their lives' tale of the war, prejudice, trials and triumphs that forged their characters and produced a lifetime of service.

Praise for the book

"Dr. Russell Horiuchi of BYU was a mentor teacher, not a data-dump teacher. . . . The questions he posed . . . exercised our mental muscles. . . . Rather than being told how the dots were connected, we had to find those connections ourselves."
—Dr. Gary C. Lawrence

"He taught us how to think."
—Michael M. Dudley
