"I realize that blood that is shed can't make blood flow again in other people's veins." This powerful quote comes from a man named Minh who grew up in North Vietnam, was a victim of the Land Reform in the 50's, immigrated to South Vietnam, and was conscripted to fight for the South in the late 60's. He was the oldest of six children and his niece Huong is one of our narrators along with the family matriarch, Minh's mother Tran Dieu Lan. Experience the turmoil in Vietnam in the 50's and the 70's with these brave women and their family. See the effects of Agent Orange and the forging of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Heartbreaking and thought-provoking. If you loved Pachinko, this book is for you.
