Summary
  • "In April 1943, fifteen-year-old Maria Rosa Henson (1928-1996) was taken by Japanese soldiers occupying the Philippines and forced into prostitution as a "comfort woman." In this simply told yet powerfully moving autobiography, Rosa recalls her childhood as the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy landowner, her work for Huk guerrillas, her wartime ordeal, and her marriage to a rebel leader who left her to raise their children alone
  • Her triumph against all odds is embodied by her decision to go public - at the urging of the Task Force on Filipino Comfort Women - with the secret she had held close for fifty years."--Jacket
