In the years following the end of the Vietnam War in 1975, hundreds of thousands fled the brutal Communist rule. (Some estimates put the number well over a million.) In fleeing, tens of thousands perished, most by drowning. Other refugees were kidnapped and murdered by pirates, and many were sold into slavery or prostitution. This book is about a family that fled Vietnam in 1978. It is a story that follows the lives of two people… how they met, fell in love, started a family, and created a successful business–until the Communists took control, forcing them to leave their homeland in search of freedom in America. In this poignant account, the author (who was only seven years old when their boat slipped out to sea) shares her family’s remarkable story of love, faith, and determination.
