The Overstory - Richard Powers - A Short Summary and Review

A Pledge of Silence - Flora J. Solomon - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book A Pledge of Silence:

What the Angels of Bataan went through while living in hell.

My favorite Flora J. Solomon quote from the book:

"Turning misfortune into triumph is a way to conquer it."




Questions to ponder while reading the book:

How should POWs be treated?

How should Veterans be treated?

My review of A Pledge of Silence:

We need to do a better job for our returning vets.

WWII was such an ugly time.

While this is about a fictional character, the Angels of Bataan were real. The biographies of three of them can be found through the following links:
