Did you think your 9-yr old grandchildren would read a WWII novel?

It never occurred to me that my 9-yr old grandchildren would read my historical novel “Bahala Na (Come What May). But surprisingly they did and love it.

I sent a copy of my book (BAHALA NA – Come What May) to my stepdaughter in Connecticut who have three kids: twin girls aged 9 and their sister, aged 11. My stepgrandchildren love reading and they are well ahead of their class in reading. A day after my daughter got the book, she decided to start reading it but she could not find the book where she placed it. She looked all over the house. She then saw one of the twins in the living room, engrossed in reading the book. My granddaughter refused to give it up and carried the book to school. She read the book whenever she could. Her teacher saw her reading it and was shocked to see her reading a historical novel and told her she could not read it. She held the book up and pointed to the author proudly. “My grandma wrote this book and it is very good!” The teacher was dumbfounded. She did not know what to say.

My granddaughter talked to me on the phone and announced, “Grandma, your book is really good.” I was thrilled to hear that and suddenly thought if there was anything in the book that a 9-yr old should not read. Luckily there was none that I could think of. There are lots of educational stuffs that could be very interesting for someone who is thirsting for knowledge. When she finished the book, her older sister read it, then their mother did and now my youngest granddaughter, the younger of the twin is in the middle of reading it. They came to visit this week and she showed me where she was at the book. My grandchildren wants to know when they can visit the Philippines and see all the places mentioned in the book.  

BAHALA NA (Come What May) is written with everyone in mine, young or old. History, romance, legend, travelogue, action and suspense filled the pages. It’s a book for someone who loves to learn something, someone who thirsts for knowledge. I wrote the book with a goal to educate, to teach something. The book is based on historical facts – historical knowledge that seemed to be lacking in people’s mind nowadays. It is an excellent educational tool and I highly recommend it to be included in the school curriculum in history for both American and Filipino students.

Filipinos are a growing population here and abroad. There is so much to know about the Filipino people. If you want to learn about the Filipinos and what make them tick, read BAHALA NA (Come What May). GET YOUR COPY NOW! It is available at www.amazon.com/author/rosalindarmorgan in paperback and Kindle.
