it was amazing
Recommended for: Any one who likes to learn of other cultures and histories
Read in January, 2005

A violent beginning almost prevented me from reading this book. I am so glad that I continued. It is the story of the Japanese occupation of the Phillipines. The characters are members of a few different families who hide out together in a basemnet and share Phillipino fables with one another. The folklore is woven into the story of the war to create a tapestry of personal and national history. Another great read.
