Gudao, Lone Islet Review

Greg Leck, author of Captives of Empire, The Japanese Internment of Allied Civilians in China 1941-1945

Childhood’s joys, wonders and discoveries, along with its fears, frustrations and disappointments, are recounted against a backdrop of growing uncertainty and the upheaval of a world at war in the autobiographical Gudao, Lone Islet. Wrenched from a secure and loving home, and thrust into a wretched existence in which the threat of violence hangs over everyone, Margaret Blair’s tale of physical and emotional survival will serve as a testament to the fortitude of the human spirit, and the resiliency of youth.
