Filipinos now celebrate their Independence Day on June 12, the day they got their independence from the colonial rule of Spain in 1898. When I was growing up, we celebrated Independence Day on July 4, the day the United States granted independence to the Philippines in 1946.
To honor both dates, I’m offering a month long reduced price for a signed copy of “BAHALA NA (Come What May)”, a WWII novel for a special price of $16.95 with free shipping. Please send your name and address together with a check for $16.95 payable to Rosalinda Morgan and mail to Rosalinda Morgan, 3056 Sugarberry Ln., Johns Island, SC 29455. Envelope has to be postmarked between June 5 and July 4, 2013.
“Bahala Na (Come What May)” is a fresh look at the traditions and social mores of the Philippines just before and during World War II. It is a gripping tale of a Filipino couple coping with the vicissitude of life during the war until they gained their independence from the United States on July 4, 1946. It describes some events that were never written before and are part of the Philippine history that we should know about.
