Hazel's idyllic childhood is torn apart by the bombing of Rangoon. The Japanese armies overrun Burma, forcing the family to move from one refuge to another. Hazel's father, a Muslim, and her mother, a Catholic, fears for her children. Told through a child's eyes, this story tells of a family's travails during the darkest days of enemy occupation.


Hazel's idyllic childhood is torn apart by the bombing of Rangoon, just prior to Christmas 1941. Her parents convince her she is off on a marvellous holiday as they flee the city - leaving her precious dolls behind.


The Japanese armies overrun Burma, forcing her family to flee from one refuge to another. Hazel's father, a Muslim, has worked for the British government and initially relies on the official refugee policy. Her mother, a Catholic, fears for her children - especially Hazel's older brothers who take daring opportunities to harass the Japanese.


Told through a child's eyes, this story tells of a family's travails during the darkest days of enemy occupation. Threaded with light, shot through with hope, it recounts Hazel's hard-won passage from innocence to maturity.
