The story is a narrative account of the events during and after Typhoon Haiyan, as it draws from the stories of survivors and of the protagonist of their epic tales of survival, and is expected to inspire and touch lives that will surely spun a classical tale of its own. In retrospect, the book visits the controversy that hampered the government’s rescue and rehabilitation effort, where to this day, it remains to be seen whether it has delivered up to its promise of shelter and livelihood assistance to many survivors who are still in their tents. The author makes an effort to keep the memory of that day alive by keeping facts and figures of the event in his book where he also gives a truly unique and moving commentary that begs to be read in one sitting. “I wrote this book for one sole purpose. That the events of that day will not be forgotten,” said the young novelist, as he prepares to campaign support for his book around the country.
Typhoon Haiyan or locally known as Yolanda in the Philippines, was the strongest typhoon to make landfall in history. It occurred on November 8, 2013, destroying livestock and limb in large areas in Central and Eastern Philippines.
