The previous book by this gifted Vietnamese author, South Wind Changing, was a Time Magazine Best Book of the Year and a bestseller in America, and was a memoir of his escape from torture and degradation in a Vietcong concentration camp to a new life in America. His second book, a novel, is also set in wartime Vietnam, and is the harrowing yet sensitively-told story of Mai, a young Vietnamese woman, who escapes from violence and abuse under the new regime in South Vietnam to begin a new life in the U.S. But her past follows her wherever she goes, and she carries her pain and guilt with her like a scar till she makes her final decision to accept her destiny.
