A Book That is an Adventure Story

2018

From Mary Jo

Eve of a Hundred Midnights is the true story two married journalists on an island-hopping run for their lives across the Pacific after the Fall of Manila during World War II—a saga of love, adventure, and danger.

Hopping between the Philippines, Japan, China, the United States, and more, this is a close-up look at Asia during WWII. History has given some of the events a different brush stroke than Mel and Annalee, and it was interesting to read about their experiences in real time, rather than looking backward.

If you’re at all interested in this era of history, you’ll want to pick up this book. It took me awhile to get through it, but I’m glad I did.
