Apture or worseDesperate for money medicine and guns the resistance recruits Gina to join their underground army and smuggles her back to Manila There she forges a new identity and opens a nightclub where seductive beauties sing dance and tease secrets out of high ranking Japanese officers while the wildly successful club and its enemy patrons help fund the resistance 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 you laugh you cry This book will do all of that to youThe author has obviously done a lot of research for this book She has done as I always advise people who want to write who ask me What is your top tip for potential writers I say to them Read a lot She has made disassembled real characters from the wartime Philippines era and reassembled them into her fictional characters The result is very authentic and believableOnce you are into the third of fourth chapter you will find this book difficult to put down It is skillfully written I always wanted to know what would happen next The end of a chapter was definitely NOT the time to switch off my bedside lightYour emotions will be stirred right up to the endI highly recommend this book to all my friends

    I selected this book to see a perspective of WWII in the Philippines Unfortunately the main character was so vapid and unlikeable that I didn't care what happened to her Gina is a society woman caught up with Junior League looking good and that's all She has a daughter that is raised by the help and she has an undying faith in General MacArt

    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 uite well though It was a shame because the book was meticulously researched and really did j

    Finished reading July 19th 2019 Manila's magic was gone replaced by an undercurrent of fear potent enough to be sensed by an observer A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by Netgalley and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for an honest review Thank you view spoilerI have always had a weak spot for historical fiction and especially if the story is set during WWI or WWII I admit I was sold as soon as I read the blurb of Al

    What an unbelievable but based on facts storyI’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 captor
