A heart warming story of triumph over adversity
on 1 November 2015
This is not the usual genre I read, but thankfully Amazon recommended it.
An unusual story about the escape from Burma of a group of school children who, led by their teacher, attempt to reach India as the Imperial Japanese army advanced.
Betrayal, death, hunger and murder are just a few of the adversities to be overcome yet, love, loyalty and laughter coupled with the amazing strength and intelligence of elephants who assist their escape make this a truly remarkable story.
Elephant Moon ,although a work of fiction, brings to life not only the failings of certain British military leaders at this crucial period of WW11, but highlights the struggles and suffering of those prepared to fight for freedom.
