Judy Rekola, an adventurous grandmother, has completed her first book “A Conscience at War: A Japanese Soldier’s Story”: a gripping and potent tale of the struggles of this young father as he fights for his country but more importantly his family.

Judy Rekola expresses, “This is a very different story, and yet one many war veterans can relate to.” The main character, “Takashi Miyake[,] has had a nearly ideal upbringing with unexpected opportunities along the way.” He “manages to survive the rigors of army life in a foreign land with his resourcefulness, humor, and the strong connection he has with those around him.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Judy Rekola’s poignant tale will surely give the reader a glimpse into a day in the life of the enemy. One might find more similarities with this man than differences. Like our American boys fighting in a far away land, the enemy, too, just wanted to get home.

Rekola uses the diary writings of this man to map together a life that was headed towards a successful career but instead was pulled towards war and rigorous survival. The diary paints a picture of an enemy that is not so unfamiliar. Readers will find themselves intrigued with Takashi Miyake and the vivid description of war he has created in his own words.

Readers who wish to experience this intriguing and insightful work can purchase“A Conscience at War: A Japanese Soldier’s Story” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
