Spencer, along with her husband were living on Masbate at the time of the Japanese bombings of Pearl Harbor and the Philippines. Rather than surrender and face imprisonment, the Spencers and several other families (including Claude Fertig, brother of Wendell Fertig who led guerrilla forces on the island of Mindanao) banded together and fled to the jungle-covered mountains of Masbate, and then crossed the sea in a small boat to Panay. Guerrilla Wife details their struggle to survive, their friendship with missionaries and Filipino guerrillas, her giving birth to a daughter, and finally their escape by submarine to Australia.
