A Doorbell, A Dictator, A Dad by Mitos Suson

January 7, 2023

I received this memoir as a prize in a Christmas competition and am so pleased I’ve read it. It’s an absolutely riveting account of the author’s youth during the Marcos regime in the Philippines when her dad was arrested for conspiring against the dictator. I read it in two sittings and found it fascinating, sad, compelling and informative.

An excellent record of what happened at the time and how the harshness of the regime disrupted Mitos Suson’s family and thousands of other lives.

Here’s the link to the book on Goodreads where you can choose where to buy it.

    • Thank you, Fran. I’m really glad you find the reviews useful. I need to catch up with them a bit as I missed posting some of them last year, but I like posting them here. I think it makes it easier for people to find reviews on a blog. Happy New Year to you too, my dear! I hope all’s well with you at the moment.

  2. Yes, as we enter 2023, life is good, quiet after all the festivities, and looking forward with hope. Bless you! 🤗😁
