When Margie Bauer joins the Army Nurse Corps in 1941, she is delighted to be assigned to Manila - the Pearl of the Orient. Though rumors of war circulate, she feels safe - the island is fortified, the airbases are ample, and the Filipino troops are well-trained.
But on December 8, 1941, her dreamworld shatters. Captured by the invading Japanese, Margie ends up interned at Santa Tomas, an infamous prison camp. There, for the next three years, while enduring brutality and starvation, her bravery, resourcefulness, and faith are tested and her life forever changed.
At once an epic tale of a nation at war and the deeply personal story of one woman's journey through hell, A Pledge of Silence vividly illustrates the sacrifices the Greatest Generation made for their country, and the price they continued to pay long after the war was over.

Wonderful story about a WW2 nurse!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about a nurse in the Philippines during WW2. This book talks about the effects the war has on her and her family and friends. I also enjoyed the narration of this fascinating story.
What did you like best about this story?
The story of the nurse before, during, and after the war is the best part. Plus, I like the ending of the historical fiction novel and found it very satisfying throughout!
What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

You won't be disappointed!
This is not the type of book I read. I got tired, quite a while ago, with boring romances, and have turned immediately to mysteries when looking for a book. I was ready for something different this time, so started skimming through all of them. I can't remember what exactly caught my eye, but I'm so glad this book did. Once I started reading it, and listening to it while in the car, I couldn't stop. Very well written and narrated!
