First off, I've been to Burma, which doesn't really change, so I relate especially to the setting. Dorothy Gilman usually does a good job with her settings. They are like travelogues -- at least in the places I have also visited. The plot involves a bit of supernatural, and a bit of created supernatural. The feature of the insurgent group, and the Chinese Communist rings true, although the Kuomingtang (nationalist) was more active in the area just after 1949. What I liked best was the interaction between the captives -- how they resolved differences and came to respect each other strengths. Perhaps the puppetmaster made it so. I especially liked the line praising escapist literature. The last reason I appreciate the book is that I spent two weeks of my youth with a sculptor named Genevieve in upstate New York, who reminded me of Gen.
