Author Melissa Bowersockabout this book: In this age of instant gratification where we get irritated if our web browser takes more than a nanosecond to load, hardship and sacrifice seem to be outdated concepts. We very often forget how fortunate we are. We go to the grocery store and browse aisle after aisle of delicious, fresh food; we sleep on pillow-top beds and watch wide-screen TVs. For many, the greatest hardship of the day might be when our cell phone battery dies.

Compare this to living in a prisoner-of-war camp.

Marcia Gates: Angel of Bataan is the true story of a courageous Army nurse and a prisoner-of-war during World War II. Captured by the Japanese after the fall of Corregidor, she endured hardships we can only imagine. Forced to live in over-crowded and unsanitary conditions, starved and beaten, she fought bravely to continue her work, to care for her patients, to last out the war … to live. Her story reminds us what true hardship is, what it means to sacrifice for our country and what it means to be ever hopeful. It is a story of incredible challenge and fierce dedication, and it is the story of the unbreakable human spirit.
