Imagine growing up in a land where your government proudly tricks and imprisons its own citizens … where city officers rob and confiscate their citizens’ houses out of greed—legally … where the local authorities monitor not only how much food each family can eat, but what they will eat.
After four years of living under the brutal Vietnamese Communist government, one brave young girl has had enough. At fifteen, she sets out for the most unforgettable journey of her life, all alone and with only three sets of clothes to her name. Her faith, optimism, and humor give her the strength to fight for her freedom. Generous strangers step up to help her through the many dangers she faces, both from the elements and other people who do not want to see her escape.
For one courageous young Vietnamese woman, hers is the adventure of a new lifetime.
