Page 158 Books welcomes Flora J. Solomon to discuss her new novel Along the Broken Bay.
In a blink of an eye, life changes for American born Gina Thorpe, who is living the good life in Manila when the Japanese invade the Philippines in December 1941. Working with a small band of guerrillas, she opens Pearl Blue, a nightclub that becomes a hub of resistance in the occupied city and a source of funds that support both the underground armies and American soldiers held in Japanese prison camps. The story was inspired by true events.

It was, then, she started writing fiction. Her first novel, A Pledge of Silence, was selected the Historical Novel Society's Editor's Choice.
