This was a fantastic book, relating one woman's experience in the Northern area of occupied Korea during World War II. She chose not to bow down to the idols the Japanese oppressors demanded everyone worship. The book chronicles what happened to her because of this choice. She was and is a Christian, so though the things that happened to her, it also tells of how she overcomes her circumstances through her faith. I loved it and highly recommend it.
This book is inspiring. This young lady faced imprisonment-even death-and yet she still protested the Japanese's shintoism. It reminds you that following and obeying God is more important than bowing to heathen idols.
The true story of a young girl during the Japanese occupation of Korea and World War II. Fancinating to hear of the persecution and trials that the Christians went through in that country. There are many books on the persecution in Europe at this time, but not many on what went on in Asia. Esthers faith and that of her mother are remarkable. At one point she was released from prison only to be told by her mother that she should go back or she wasn't faithful to Christ. A real eye opener on how a true faithful christian endures real trials.
This is the story of one Christian woman's struggle against Japanese oppression in her country of Korea during World War II.
