Natural Destiny is dedicated to my mother, Bernie, and the thousands of other Guamanians who suffered under the Japanese occupation during World War II. Eight-year-old Bernie spends three of her precious childhood years as a prisoner in a concentration camp on the island of Guam during World War II. Cry with her when she sees her home village of Sumay burn to the ground. Share her fear when she sees her first execution. Laugh with her when she sees the Japanese soldiers’ reaction to the Taotaomo’na. Share her elation when after three years of captivity, the American soldiers liberate her island. Based on a true story, follow Bernie as she picks up the pieces of a broken life and learns what real faith and courage is all about.
