if you have read The Rape of Nanking by Iris Chang then this book will reiterate the same story but from an American missionary's who was left behind by her religous denomination and from her perspective of how they survive the rapes, tortures and persecution by the Japanese conquerers.. upon the return of the egomanicacl head of this religious group, a Mrs Denison, the young missionary lady is taken to task for opening the doors to protect several thousands of individuals rather than continue to operate as an exclusive school for for the sake of ego and adulation of Mrs Dennison..
