Excerpt:

 

When WWII broke out, Aileen Coates (better known in Portugal as Sister Aedris of the Convento de Nossa Senhora do Bom Sucesso, Belém) was a young girl living in Singapore with her parents and her four siblings. Aileen’s story begins in late 1941, when Singapore was on the point of falling to the Japanese and her mother, together with her five children were about to be evacuated on a British ship, leaving their father to await internment under Japanese occupation.
