Review


"An important story, well told..."
"Gripping."
"An exceptional historical novel..."

From the Author

This is a important story that needs to be told. It's the life story of a Korean comfort women. In case you don't know (most Americans don't) 'comfort woman' is the euphemistic label given to girls and young women the Japanese forced to be sex slaves for their army during WWII.  

There are very few books about this atrocity, so I wrote DAUGHTERS OF THE DRAGON, a 92,000 word novel about the life of one of these women. Today, under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the Japanese are trying to bury this history. It's a crime and I hope my book can help Americans understand why the Koreans, Chinese and Filipinos have such a problem with Japan's position.

BTW, my first novel THE ESSENTIAL TRUTH won first prize in the Mayhaven award for fiction. I was also an award winning advertising copywriter for 34 years. I wrote two books (that I'm currently re-writing) before DAUGHTERS to learn this very difficult craft.


I'm convinced you'll enjoy this book. 

Bill Andrews


P.S. The comfort women who are still alive are now in their late 80's and 90's and their numbers are diminishing quickly. DAUGHTERS OF THE DRAGON is hard to take in a few places, but overall, it's a very uplifting story. And as I said, it's a story needs to be told!

Absolutely an outstanding read. I lived in Korea for several years and grew to love everything about this magnificent little country and its people. Everyone should learn more about the hardship these people have had to to endure and this book tells it all "warts and all" I cannot recommend a book more highly.

I don't normally do reviews, it's just not my thing but I felt compelled with this book. I have read a lot of World War Two stories from many different perspectives but never have I read one from the view point of a comfort women. I am ashamed to say I didn't even know they existed. There was an earlier review that said something about the author making up the story to fulfill his own sexual fantasy and it almost deterred me from reading this book. But I wanted to set the record straight, at no point in this book did I feel it was the authors sexual fantasy. On the contrary, I felt this was the very compelling and heart felt story of one women's tormented but victorious life story. The story needs to be told and it is very well written...Do yourself a favor and read this book!!

Fascinating story of survival and courage. Those who suffer make the world a better place. We who follow need to know their history.

I was not fully aware of the awful situations these young girls experienced during WW II. It is sad that these terrible acts of violence were tolerated and worse yet that so little has been done for the survivors.

This was a story about the courageous life of a young girl who went through an unimaginable horror. I couldn't put this book down. I had no idea that this atrocity occurred. It wasn't a part of the history lesson.

I feel like I'm a pretty slow reader, averaging at a good pace maybe one book a month. I finished this book in about a week so I know it was good. An event in world history that I was truly ignorant of, but now feel passionate about, Daughters of the Dragon weaves the fictional story of Hong, Ja-hee around the true events that took place not only in WWII, but also throughout the Korean war which to this day has never ended. As a Westerner, I admittedly focus more on European and American histories in my readings so this book has opened an entirely new and fascinating subject for me. I found myself Googling parts of this story to lead me to more articles on the topic and learn more about this time period and geography. This book does not let America off the hook either for its participation in the division of Korea and allows you to draw your own conclusions or remain yourself divided as the narrator of the story, Anna Carlson aka Ja-Young, finds herself. We are still presently living in this situation with a divided Korea and while as Americans, it seems easy to determine that North Korea is villainous because of its sordid history of dictatorial and brutal leaders, Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong-il, Kim Jong-un, we must remember the beautiful people who still live there and recognize the shameful history that Korea has had with respect to hostile invaders who never allowed it to be its own sovereign nation. Bill Andrews definitely has my attention and I anxiously wait his sequel (or maybe prequel is a better descriptor) to this story with his new book that goes into the history of Empress Myeongseong

I heard stories about comfort women but never really understood the full impact. The book was informative and heartbreaking the way the Korean society reacted and victimize these women. It is a story that needs to be told.
