Helen Colijn's account of her wartime experiences is a window into a largely overlooked dimension of World War II -- the imprisonment of women and children in Southeast Asia by the Japanese and how these prisoners of war responded to their dire circumstances. Their courage, faith, resiliency, ingenuity, and camaraderie provide us with enduring lessons on living.
