Marie Caroline Cooney is the daughter of the diary’s author and organized the information included in the book. She has completed her new book, “The Diary of Ethel Jones”: an account of the events that happened during Miss Jones’ five years working as a nurse in China and her escape from China following the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Marie writes, “The Diary of Ethel Jones is the story of a young American nurse who went to China in 1937, just before the start of the second Sino Japanese war.

“Within the first year following her arrival in China, the war arrived at the doorstep of the hospital in Kioshan, Honan, where she worked. For the next four years, she assisted Dr Skinsnes in caring for wounded Chinese soldiers and civilians, under primitive conditions, while experiencing continued harassment from warring forces.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Cooney’s new book takes readers back in time to experience the day to day life of Ethel Jones, who persevered through many physical hardships and never lost her faith that God would be there for her, so that she could help the people of Kioshan.

Readers can purchase “The Diary of Ethel Jones” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
