Overview

Jean-Marie Faggiano and her family were living in the Philippines when Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941. The following month, she and her family, along with over 3,600 other non-national civilians, were forced to surrender to the Imperial Japanese Army and live as civilian prisoners of war in the Santo Tomas Internment Camp in Manila.

In Through My Mother's Eyes, you will experience how a young girl and her family were able to survive their thirty-seven month ordeal until their nick-of-time rescue by American forces on February 3, 1945.

Through My Mother's Eyes is a story of a world rampant with sickness, starvation, and brutality, but it is also an incredible story of love, courage, and enduring faith.

"A story of courage... and courage now to tell it." - Charles Ashbacher, Top Reviewer for Amazon.com

"Admirable courage in the midst of war. If you're a lover of history, stories of tragedies and triumphs, this is a must-read book." - Dr. Gino Matibag, Makati City, Philippines, Author of JAPAN Lights and Shadows
