The wedding night in Manila was full of promise and Dorothy Dore was prepared to give herself completely to the charming American soldier in the blue uniform. Surely, he stood for duty, honor, and country, just as her father had. However, Sergeant K had a dark secret, which came to the light in a brutal honeymoon attack on her. He promised it would never happen again... "Enemy in My Bed: Triumphs of a Military War Bride" is a tribute to foreign war brides, like Dorothy, who have suffered in silence for the sake of loyalty to their vows and fear of being deported. The author believes that women continue to bear the burdens of abuse caused by addictions and mental disorders because no one is willing to speak up and offer a way out. She knows because she lived it; she escaped it, and survived to tell it all. Dorothy Dore Dowlen immigrated to the United States in 1951 and now resides in San Jose, CA. She is a much sought-after speaker for civic and veterans group functions. Dowlen's first book, Enduring What Cannot Be Endured, published by McFarland Co. Inc. in 2001, is the moving memoir of her WWII years as a teenager on the run from the Japanese and as a medical aide in the jungles of Mindanao, Philippines.
