This novel is based on the true stories of a group of elderly people in Singapore who survived World War II. Meeting regularly in an elderly day-care centre, they lamented that their sacrifices in defending the country against the Japanese invaders were forgotten by the present generation. During the group meetings, they recalled the horrors of the war years, especially the massacre of young Chinese men and women in Singapore. Inspired by the BBC programme Letter from America by the journalist Alistair Cooke, they share their World War II experiences--thus began the psychological healing and restoration of their self-esteem.
