Description

Haunted by a horrible memory from the war, alone since his grown children moved out, Vietnam vet Charles Boatman returns to Vietnam after the war.

Ada and her brother Jon follow their missing father to Vietnam. Their search for him tears them apart in ways they never could have guessed, and Vietnam finds its way in. Shifting between Charles' and Ada's points of view, their journeys become increasingly colorful and complex as the story moves from the rural Pacific Northwest to the frenetic confusion of modern-day Vietnam. The suspense builds, dreamlike, to a paradoxical climax of revelation and obfuscation, love and grief.

This is a hauntingly beautiful story of family ties and human longing by the prize-winning, critically acclaimed Canadian author David Bergen.
