When Borneo was taken over by the Japanese the Keiths were there. Many of Mrs. Keith's readers suspected this, and her publishers received hundreds of anxious letters inquiring about her safety - so many in fact that the Atlantic felt called upon to print, in May 1943, the card, just received, which she had written in January 1942. It was written on the prisoners' form, sending word that she and Harry and George were interend by the Imperial Japanese Army. (They were actually treated as prisoners of war, not as internees.)

During World War II, the Far East island of Borneo is captured by the Japanese. Based on true events this is the story of American author Agnes Newton Keith who along with her husband, a British administrator, is arrested. Their family is separated and placed into different prison camps. The camp commander takes an avid interest in the authoress, but does not intervene when she is subject to torture, starvation and humiliation at the hands of the guards. Told in agonizing detail, this is the story of her confinement and attempt at escape
Three came home : a woman's ordeal in a Japanese prison camp by Agnes Newton Keith( Book )

7 editions published between 1985 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Japanese swept through Borneo in 1942, Agnes Keith was captured with her two-year-old son. Even though keeping notes was a capital offence, she wrote a diary on the backs of labels and in the margins of old newspapers, which she buried in tins or sewed inside her sons home-made toys. Unlike many other narrators of camp life, Agnes Keith gives an honest and rounded description of her Japanese captors. The camp commander, Colonel Suga, was responsible for a forced march which killed all but three out of 2,970 prisoners; yet he regularly took children for joy-rides in his car, stuffing them with sweets, and sent them back to camp with armfuls of flowers from his garden
