It is December 1937 and the Japanese Imperial Army has just entered Nanking. Unable to reach the Safety Zone in Pokou, a group of schoolgirls are hiding out in the compound of the St. Mary Magdalene mission. They are looked after by Father Engelmann, an American priest who has made China his home for many years. The church is supposed to be neutral ground in the war between China and Japan, but eyewitness reports from the outside make it clear the Japanese are not obeying the international rules of engagement. As the soldiers pour through the streets of Nanking, committing unspeakable atrocities on civilians, thirteen Chinese courtesans from a nearby brothel climb over the church compound's walls seeking refuge. Their presence further jeopardizes the children's safety and what happens next will change all of their lives.

A haunting, passionate story inspired by true life events during the Nanking Massacre, this novel shows how war challenges our prejudices and that love can flourish amidst death and destruction. The Flowers of War is an unforgettable journey through the depths of the human heart.

A emotional and distressing read.

An upsetting, emotional story based on the events of the Nanking massacre, told from the perspective of a 13 year old girl. The story is quite distressing and I found myself dwelling on the historical events and questioning how anything like this could have been allowed to take place. There isn't just one traumatic event but many which makes it even more hard to read, especially since it is very easy to relate to the characters. The author writes in quite a simple and stale way but perhaps that is to give an air of impartiality.
