This account, as told by A.L.Finch , of 4 years of her childhood spent as prisoner of the Japanese during World War II is gripping, horrifying, and at last, a record of endurance in the face of unspeakable circumstance. Beginning with a happily anticipated holiday in the Philippines to visit a schoolmate, she and her mother are caught up in the Japanese invasion, with no way out. The scenes of a mother trying against odds to protect her little girl, are heartbreaking. The one thing that keeps them going is her mother¿s courage and words of hope, repeated over and over ¿They will come to take us home. . . . We just have to get through the day.¿ The book sheds a new light on that war, and what it meant to ordinary people, at home, and those who suffered abroad. This is history. It is wonderfully readable.
