Start here - fav.me/d7l4uqp


Following in his late father's footsteps, Kazuo Matsushima enlists into the Japanese Imperial Army, leaving behind his mother and his beloved fiancée as he sets sail for the Philippines with the mission to liberate the country from the Americans and bring honor to Japan and to his family.

Meanwhile, after a Japanese air raid in their hometown of Baguio City, Philippines, Juanita Cazatela and her family move to Manila, only to flee again from Japanese cruelty. Seeking refuge amongst Filipino and American forces in war-torn Bataan, Juanita finds solace in the arms of her American lover. But Fate remained unkind.

In the same peninsula, Kazuo battles with his own fate in a bid to uphold his honor and principles: a task made difficult by sin and treachery. Now a prisoner of guerillas, he must fight for survival, seek for atonement, and struggle against a love forbidden by times.

Under circumstances brought upon by the Second World War, lives intermingle in a saga of trust and loyalty, lies and betrayal, and one ultimate truth: 

"Nothing but LOVE can conquer all."

History of Fires and Embers 2 by gwendy85
History of Fires and Embers 2
Another before and after image. The one on the left was the very first concept art I ever drew of Fires and Embers. I drew it while I was guarding my grandpa while he was in the hospital. We discussed his experiences during the war at that time too.

Now, I've always thought of changing the cover page of Fires and Embers especially after a few people pointed out I should show more of World War II. So I went back to my archives and decided to get the concept from the original one I did. I only left the important people though.

And wow. 10 years 0_0 This novel took a while.
