“Sworn brothers – One American, on Chinese – captured, imprisoned, tortured. Survival is just the beginning of the battle” (from the front cover).
Danny Hardy and Birch Bai have taken an oath as brothers, they would each die for the other. They’ve been flying together and fighting the Japanese to defend China ever since Birch rescued Danny in the mountains of Yunnan.
The struggles of the Chinese after war turns inward. Now they have to fight their own country for their freedom.
This story is so well written, and the characters are so likable to read. The continued development of the story brings to light the torment and struggles that these men went through just to survive and fight for China. It’s brutal and sad, but it is a very good read. I was rooting for Birch and Danny to make it back home after the war ended and for them to be able to find peace in their lives.
I really liked this story. It was heartbreaking, enlightening, and devastating to read. I give this story a 5-star review. It kept my attention throughout the entire book and the pages turned quickly. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to read historical, romantic, and suspense filled stories.
