hold the answer. Set in WWII Philippines and the Pacific, and with the overarching theme of patriotism and a Christian underpinning, I Shall Return is less about war and more about the Filipino and American people-their faith, their love, their struggles, and their willingness to give their lives for country, family, and friends. It relates in detail for the first time the sacrifices and martyrdom of unheralded heroes some who occupied the highest positions before the war. I Shall Return takes the reader to the dark dungeons of Fort Santiago in Manila; to Bataan, where POWs are forced to march for miles without food or water in scorching heat; to the swamps of Candaba, where guerrillas snatch escapees from certain death; to a Spanish casa where seven sisters outsmart their guards in a dramatic escape. Woven into the plot are intertwined love stories: Childhood sweet-hearts torn apart by the war--can he fulfill his promise to return to her and to his family, and how? A poor boy in love with a rich girl--we follow him as he makes himself worthy and becomes a hero. And a black American smitten by a beautiful mestiza--can he overcome prejudice and racial tensions? How about her family? With historical introductions, photographs, and rich imagery, the characters and places of I Shall Return come alive vividly and beautifully in a novel of deep dimension. This historical novel complements books on WWII Philippines published in recent years such as The Great Raid by William Breuer, Escape from Davao by John D. Lukacs and Lost in Shangri-La by Mitchell Zuckoff. In summary, the novel should be of particular interest to history, romance, religious and adventure buffs.
