"Thank you for sharing this beautiful novel with me."

I really enjoyed reading your novel. I love the fact that the love story between an American and a Vietnamese takes place in Paris. When I picture their walks together in the city of light, I recreate a lively film in my head. Perhaps you should contact a filmmaker and put this novel in a motion picture! I love My Hanh as I find myself in her, wild at heart and independent in thought. She’s the type of woman that I think many Vietnamese women wish to become. I also love the way you make the history facts and events easy to digest and enjoyable to read. Young people will love to learn about this history by reading it in a novel. Thank you for sharing this beautiful novel with me.
