9781489082923: White Coolies

It is October 1942. From the doorway of this small three-roomed cottage, which houses thirty-two of us, we look out beyond to a steaming jungle in Sumatra. In 1942 a group of sixty-five Australian Army nursing sisters was evacuated from Malaya a few days before the fall of Singapore. Two days later their ship was bombed and sunk by the Japanese. Of the fifty-three survivors who scrambled ashore, twenty-one were murdered and the remaining thirty-two taken prisoner. White Coolies is the engrossing record kept by one of the sisters, Betty Jeffrey, during the more than three gruelling years of imprisonment that followed. It is an amazing story of survival and deprivation and the harshest of conditions.

From AudioFile:

Prepare to be enthralled and deeply moved by Australian actress Beverley Dunn's reading of Betty Jeffrey's diary, kept during her internment in a Japanese prison camp during WWII. Jeffrey was one of 32 Australian Army nurses imprisoned in the Sumatra jungle in 1942. For three years she kept this secret journal of courage and awe-inspiring determination in the midst of terrible deprivation. The journal, which was published in 1954, was the basis of the film PARADISE ROAD. Dunn's matter-of-fact tone and mild Australian accent are perfect for the story. She helps listeners withstand the prisoners' life of horror while sharing in their occasional self-made joys. A 1999 Audie Award finalist. A.C.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award.
