“Pearl Harbor has been bombed!”       

        Dawn was beginning break over Manila when the insistent jangle of the telephone awakened us. My husband sleepily answered.

        “Pearl Harbor has been bombed!” The voice coming over the wire was tense. “I can’t say more now.” The warning had been relayed from an Adventist physician, an officer at the naval base in Cavite, not far from Manila.

        We were stunned.

        “You must go to Baguio at once,” my husband said as we tried to think what we should do. “Could you be ready by nine o’clock?” 

        So begins the exciting true story of Hazel Wilcox and her family, missionaries in the Philippines at the outbreak of World War II, and of the angels who watched over them through bullets, bombs, hunger, and sickness and even while they sang Christmas carols as bombers screamed overhead.
