The true story of one woman's triumph of faith.
Newlywed American missionary Darlene Deibler Rose survived four years in a notorious Japanese prison camp set deep in the jungles of New Guinea. Thinking she was never to see her husband again, Darlene Rose was forced to sign a false confession and face the executioner's sword, only to be miraculously spared.

Such an inspirational read! Days later I am still taking note of Darlene's response of prayer and Scripture recall to strengthen her. What a walk of faith and what character to exhibit in the severe circumstances she had to endure!
The narrator makes it sound so personal... Like she really is the person she is portraying. I'll say that the book starts out a little slow... I wasn't intrigued from the first moment but as time went on, I was completely captivated by her story and so encouraged by her intimate relationship with God. I am inspired by her story and I hope you will be, too. God is so, incredibly Good.
I've listened too many missionary accounts. This story was well narrated. However, the story itself seemed to bog down in details that didn't matter. Still, I found the story inspiring. I recommend it.
