Eight hundred women and children begin a 1,200-mile journey on foot across Japanese-occupied Malaya. At journey's end, only 30 will still be alive. This is the story of one woman, of her ordeal, and of how she was saved by the sacrifice of an Australian soldier. It is a story of rare individual courage in the face of certain death, and hope in the face of despair.

    " This book was a pleasant surprise for me. When I read in the synopsis that it was about a "death march" I was really concerned it would be very depressing and it was but not the entire book, thankfully. I enjoyed the easy writing style of the author but I thought the book ended strangely. It was sort of this dramatic war scene and then Jean finds out Joe is still alive and they "switch" countries looking for each other and when they find each other that seems to be the climax but you have about 80-100 pages more of "happily-ever after"=which isn't bad at all just makes for an unconventional ending. Also, the fact that Jean was running all those businesses, getting married, having children, etc- I have no idea how she kept all of that organized! "

    " Another book that I really loved about a strong woman and the lives she touched because of that strength. I also loved that developed between her and the elderly attorney who was the executor of her uncles will. Her uncle didn't want his money to go to a young woman who didn't have any experience with life and who would most likely spend (waste) his money on frivolous things. Little did he know the life experience of the heroine and how wisely she would use the money to help others. The Japanese death march she endured was amazing. I loved this book and want to look for others by this author. "

    " Learn a lot about the Australian outback and the war in Maylasia during either the Vietnam war or WWII... I should look that up. "
