    One thought on “Guerilla Wife”

    1. I read this memoir of wartime survival and escape because one of the major characters was the grandfather of my brother-in-law. This man was a key employee as a mining engineer with the international gold mining company managed by the author's husband on one of the smaller islands south of Manila.They and a good number of other foreign nationals - both business managers and agents like the mining engineer and colleagues, and missionaries - took off into the bush upon the fall of the Philippines [...]

    2. The writing is not great but the story is so compelling. Living in the jungle, moving around all the time to stay ahead of the Japanese, relying on rumor and shaky information, bad food, wild terrain and pregnant on top of it all.

    3. I am amazed at her resolution, determination, & perseverance. In the face of such adversity & heartbreak, she still managed to find beauty, hope, & laughter. Beautiful lesson in courage & grit in the worst circumstances. I will want my daughter to read this book when she is older.

    4. What an incredible story. I loved hearing about a new perspective of what life was like for some people during war world II. Such strong women and what a group that had a pretty positive attitude throughout the whole ordeal, this book is a hidden gem that could have a movie made about it!
