The Quonset in Tutujan is the sequel to A Mansion on the Moon, the story of transition through three wars — from a Spanish colony to an American territory before and after Japanese occupation in World War II — following the lives of three native Chamorro women, a teenager, her illegitimate daughter, and her granddaughter, and the men who loved them. For Vivian, the granddaughter, who falls for an American naval officer well above her station, the impossible becomes possible. Despite tremendous obstacles, he returns to Guam to search for and marry her. And to take to New York to meet his wealthy conservative family.
