In a Quiet Village is a book of childhood memories. Leonisa S. Merced-Malana recollects early milestones and in the process captures snapshots of a simple lifestyle that is rapidly becoming extinct. Each story is a swath of the brush that paints an intriguing portrait of daily life in a little town in northern Philippines.

She describes a time when the church bells echoed the pulse of the townspeople in the praying of the Angelus morning, noon, and night; the shrill joy of weddings and baptisms; and the mournful tolls of funerals. With stark honesty and unabashed innocence, the many faces of war are depicted through the eyes of a child.

In a Quiet Village recounts a personal view of the sleepy years prior to World War II through Japanese occupation and beyond.
