    Colonialist claptrap I couldn t finish this book because of the paternalistic and problematic view of the Philippines The characters are written with the assumption that they are white odd for a book that takes place in the Philippines Don t worry about being able to tell the Filipino characters apart from the white characters, though, because they re all caricatures with dark skin and black hair who speak in broken English and are mocked for continuing to follow some of the indigenous tradi Colonialist claptrap I couldn t finish this book ...

    After Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941, Japan invaded and occupied the Phillipines All Americans, soldiers and civilians, were taken prisoner Some American families were imprisoned or they escaped into the mountains to hide from the enemy Many of us know of the Bataan march and the atrocities inflicted on our men and women This is the story of a family and soldiers who through guerrilla tactics fought back This is the second historical fiction by Flora Simpson about thi...

    The book gets off to a slow start, with too much description and character background that could wait to be incorporated into the narrative later on in the story It soon picks up and rattles along at a fair pace right up until the end It is most certainly a roller coaster of action and emotions In fact, roller coaster is very apt If you think about it, that ride takes you slowly to the top of the first climb and then dives and twists and turns and it makes your head and body spin You scream The book gets off to a slow start, with t...

    Overall, this was a good book I enjoyed most of it However, I deduct one star for good reason It was clear to me, and later confirmed, the author has never been to the Philippines She can get away with that for many, but I knew, and it caused me to stand back a little instead of becoming utterly immersed in the setting She did fake it quite well though It was a shame because the book was meticulously researched and really did justice to those terrible times Even a few weeks in Luzon would Overall, this was a good book I enjoyed most of it However, I deduct one star for good reason It was clear ...

    What an unbelievable, but based on facts, story.I ve not read many stories about World War II in the Phillipines but this one and the author s previous book, A Pledge of Silence, certainly opened my eyes to the fact that the Americans who were living there when the war broke out were treated so inhumanely under their Japanese captors Both books are truly eye openers about the war in the Pacific that so little is heard about These books contain very graphic and disturbing scenes that, while fic What an unbelievable, but based on facts, story.I ve not read many stories about World War II in the Phillipines but this one and the author s previous book, A Pledge of Silence, certainly opened my eyes to the fact that the Americans who were living there when the war broke out were treated so inhumanely under their Japanese captors Both books are truly eye openers about the war ...

    This, surprisingly, was a pretty easy read The author s style isn t laden with too much description, but instead, just enough to draw the reader into the time and place I ve read zero books about the war in the Pacific until this one and really feel as though I came away with a sense of the tragedy of the war.We follow along with Gina, the somewhat pampered wife of an expat, living in Manilla When war breaks out, she flees the city with her daughter and best friend Author Flora Solomon gives This, surprisingly, was a pretty easy read The author s style isn t laden with too much description, but instead, just enough to draw the reader into the time and place I ve read zero books about the war in the Pacific until this one and really feel as though I came away with a sense of the tragedy of the war.We follow along with Gina, the somewhat pampered wife of an expat, living in Manilla When war breaks out, she flees ...
