Corridors of Pain

“Cecilia Andersen paints a vivid word picture of a young girl, driven into the jungle for her own safety during WWII in the Philippines.  The story packs an emotional wallop that combines with a compelling plot in a true-to-life historical setting. The reader will tremble with the heroine’s terror and will delight at her discoveries in this extraordinary autobiographical novel.  This is reality writing, and readers will love it!”
