Another book by David Miller that I could not put down until I read all of it. 
The history and heart of this family are so honest, beautiful and amazing! 
A must read!

A Sweet Heartwarming Story
I was touched by the simple yet reverting story. All too often personal memoirs tend to overdramatize events and contributions. Here was an ordinary family surviving in a jungle hamlet during World War II and the story is told well, full of little details that paints a vivid picture of that difficult period. This is a personal account that deserves a place among this history books. A worthwhile read. - Jamie Chan C. S. on

I found this book to be enjoyable, informative and easy to read. I learned much about the 
history of the occupation of Singapore during WWI by the Japanese. There were many 
hardships endured by this fascinating corner of the world of which I knew very little. 
Bahau is where the author's family and many others went to avoid hardships in Singapore.
It was "suggested" that they go there & farm the "paradise there. It was jungle. 
I highly recommend this book.

Very informative. Happy that the Author is keeping the name of "BAHAU" alive.
Unfortunately, the current generation has allowed it to fall into the cracks of history.
Long live BAHAU !
