    " This is the story of Darlene Deibler Rose who was a Christian missionary with her husband during World War II in New Guinea. When the Japanese took over the island, Darlene and her husband were separated into separate Japanese prison camps, one for women and young boys and the other for men. Darlene's story is full of details about what occurred in these camps, but underlying everything, through all of the pain and suffering, Darlene's faith never failed her. Her intense belief in God and strong faith lead her through four years of harsh conditions, and even when she found out her husband died in the men's camp, she perseveres and stays strong because of her unfailing belief in God's hand in her life and in all things. Darlene was an inspiration to the other ladies in the camp, and through her loving demeanor, Darlene ministered to hundreds during this trying time. She was a very special woman. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette | 3/22/2013

    " BOTTOM LINE: I like fast moving books and this is one of those books where it's hard to stop - especially once you hit the point in the book where she's been captured. I always want to give stories like this to those people we all know in life who are so absorbed by their own problems they don't know how much worse life could be. This book will get your eyes off yourself. I love that the audio book can even be given to someone confined in bed. This will completely take you out of the world you're in and transport you to another place and time. Also, the words are beautifully expressed. P.S. Only disappointment with this audio book is the reader. She sounds crusty and just not at all like I imagine Darlene would have sounded! Also, Darlene was young when she went through this. I wish they would have chosen a middle- aged, younger speaker instead! However, I do like that this audio is unabridged. "

    " True story written by a POW in what is now Guam during WWII. I'm always on the lookout for more books about the war. This one was very heavy on religion and how it helped her survive her ordeal. It was ponderous reading with lots of names and details, but the overall story was interesting. "
