About The Book

Cajipe_hi-resVisible Darkness: Super Storm Yolanda International Name Haiyan by Emy Cajipe 

In a riveting firsthand account, Emy Cajipe recounts her experience surviving Super Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the city of Tacloban and surrounding areas in November 2013. Beginning with a snapshot of her childhood in the Philippines, Emy paints a picture of the country she knew when it was still whole and beautiful, with its social complexities and lush landscape. Her spellbinding story parallels her struggle in the days following Haiyan with the experience of her family in the United States as they search and wait for her return. Visible Darkness is a gripping tale that fills in the gaps left by the media after a catastrophe and provides insight into the lives of those who have experienced natural disaster. This will change the way you see the world. (Dorrance Publishing 2015)
