Review: BAREFOOT IN FIRE by Barbara-Ann Gamboa Lewis

Mel U from The Reading Life selected Barefoot in Fire: A World War II Childhood by Barbara-Ann Gamboa Lewis for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s an excerpt from his review:

Barefoot in Fire: A WWII Childhood-by Barbara-Ann Gamboa Lewis is a story of the World War II
years in Manila.  It tells of the life of the author and her family in the Manila area during the period of the Japanese occupation of the Philippines and the period when the Americans come back and drive the Japanese out.  As the narrative begins, Barbara Ann is about eight.

It is not a story of war atrocities or family tragedy so much as a tale of hope and the strength of the human .
spirit.
