8 out of 10

rabck from bookstogive; written from the US author's perspective (and she started it before Diep's arrival in the US), the Vietnam portion was a little light. A soldier's lover decides to write to his ex-wife during the Vietnam war. The story is told in letters, along with fill in dialog of the author's life with 5 kids, including one with CF, and Diep's life in Vietnam as the mother of 2 Amerasian daughters during the war, and after she was abandoned by the soldier, Vietnam fell and survival under the communist regime before she was finally granted permission to travel with her daughters to the US. Heartbreaking in Vietnam for Diep.

This one is reserved for the "J" author bookring.

Received this today as part of IwillRejoice's ABC Authors Book Rings - US version - Letter J (Link)

The goal for me to be in this book ring is to get books and give them away, to reduce the piles of books in the house. So much for THAT. I'll be keeping this book to read before I send it on.

January 25, 2018: Pulled this off of Mount TBR . Will use it as part of my "Reduce Mount TBR Challenge" (Link), and somehow send it along as part of Booklady331's "Keep Them Moving Challenge" (Link).

April 26, 2018: Finished this book today. It's an old book, but the story sheds light into the feelings of people at that point in our country's history. Very interesting to learn history this way, my favorite way - from the views of the everyday people who are living through it at the time.

May 10, 2018: Today this book was entered into Booklady331's Already Been Crossed VBB, Hope someone will choose it to send it on a journey!
