Thank you for posting, this sounds like a book I'll really enjoy. Did you read Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand? It's the story of a WWII American pilot shot down and interred in a Japanese prison camp. I couldn't put it down either, the story is so compelling. Mr. Zamperini, the man who experienced all of this, died a couple of years ago but I was fortunate enough to hear him interviewed and was glued to the radio throughout the entire program. He was a most interesting man. The book was made into a movie but I didn't care for it much, the book is where the story lies. Thanks again.
Happy Sewing, Carol
