Several people try to escape Singapore on a merchant ship as the Japanese army is headed their way.

After being capsized by the Japanese army, some of the people on board survive after a day in the water, making their way to an island.Β 

Sadly, they are captured and spend several years in a Japanese POW camp. The focus is on the years in this camp and how they were treated there.

I am astounded as I read more and more about WWll. Sisters Under the Rising Sun dialed in on what it was like in aΒ  women’s POW camp and how strong these women were. This is a topic I hadn’t read about before, and it was eye-opening.

Norah and Nesta are the main characters who work tirelessly to care for others and improve life while living in dire circumstances. Norah Chambers had a musical background, which she used to bring music and a touch of joy to the camp. Sister Nesta James was a Welsh Australian nurse who cared for the women the best she could with their few supplies.Β 

These women lived an atrocious life for almost four years. Some survived to tell this story, starved, sick, and weak but alive. Others were buried on the outskirts of the various camps they lived at. It’s such a sad story, but I’m glad I could hear it.

In the back of the book, the author included information about the real women this book was written about. I love reading a little extra about the characters when the story is based on actual events. I was happy to see some of the survivors lived a long life after being rescued.Β 

Thank you to NetGalley, the author, and the publisher for providing this ebook for me to read and review. πŸ’•
