When I saw the latest book out by Tosca Lee, The Long March Home, I was both excited and confused. I knew her as an author of Biblical/Ancient fiction and a bit of suspense. I didn’t know she’d written dystopian, too… and here she was with a new WWII novel about three friends who went through the war together–including the Bataan Death March. Listen in to learn about this upcoming release, co-written with author Marcus Brotherton!

What Unexpected Stories Will You Read in This Exciting New Novel?
Coming out on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, The Long March Home is actually a split-time novel with the past and “current” stories of three friends from Mobile, Alabama and their experiences in the Pacific Theater (beginning with cool stuff in the Philippines) in WWII. One of the most fascinating bits of information I got just from the conversation as how that some US servicemen stationed in Manila had done their boot camp training in the Philippines instead of before they shipped out!
Additionally, I loved learning about the collaboration between Tosca Lee and Marcus Brotherton. A combined twelve years of work went into this project, and the research sounds fascinating! If that’s not enough to grab you and shake you by your lapels…
Tosca then throws out a preorder special that has me drooling all over the place! Guys!

Jimmy Propfield joined the army for two reasons: to get out of Mobile, Alabama, with his best friends Hank and Billy and to forget his high school sweetheart, Claire.
Life in the Philippines seems like paradise–until the morning of December 8, 1941, when news comes from Manila: Imperial Japan has bombed Pearl Harbor. Within hours, the teenage friends are plunged into war as enemy warplanes attack Luzon, beginning a battle for control of the Pacific Theater that will culminate with a last stand on the Bataan Peninsula and end with the largest surrender of American troops in history.
What follows will become known as one of the worst atrocities in modern warfare: the Bataan Death March. With no hope of rescue, the three friends vow to make it back home together. But the ordeal is only the beginning of their nearly four-year fight to survive.
Inspired by true stories, The Long March Home is a gripping coming-of-age tale of friendship, sacrifice, and the power of unrelenting hope.
