(Bern) Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas This sounds so heartbreaking Elyse. I can only imagine the unfathomable horrors endured by these girls.

Selena Beautiful review Elyse!


message 6: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa Flawless review 😉


Jaline - (on 2/3 hiatus) Lovely and heartfelt review, Elyse! I agree about the term "comfort women", too. After all - who 'comforts' them in their shame and humiliation?

Jeannie Nice review, Elyse!

Angela M “The heart of the story itself flawless” - can’t think of a better endorsement, Elyse. I’m hoping to get to this soon.

Laysee Such a thoughtful review, Elyse. The term 'comfort women' is derogatory. This Singapore girl should read a book set in Singapore by a Singaporean author. Thanks for putting this on my radar. :-)

Lynn Such a touching review. This is already on my TBR list.

Marilyn Hi Elyse,
I have also read several books about this period in history and the horrible things the Japanese did. It is so sad that for so long this was covered up. I will add this book to my long list but it sounds so worth reading. Thanks.

Marilyn, I wonder if we have read some of the same books about this history --
The Rape of Nanking -- and The Distant Land of My Father are a couple of books that come to mind for me. --
Each story is different --but what the history of what the Japanese is 'fact'....

Hugs and hope its warming a little in Canada... (our daughter can't wait for spring). xox
