Anh Vu Sawyer was a 20-year-old medical student in Saigon in March of 1975. As the rumors spread of an imminent siege, she was certain that even if the Viet Cong took the city, her family would be safe in God's hands. All they needed was a way out. Tracing her family's harrowing journey out of Vietnam and to the United States, Anh offers a powerful example of the strength of faith and God's enduring grace.
This profoundly affecting true story of one family's experiences and survival in the face of enormous hardships is heart-wrenching at times, and joyous at others. With a dramatic narration by Christina Moore, Song of Saigon is a thrilling listen.

"Poignant, well-told....This is a moving story." (Publishers Weekly)
"A stirring testament to the tenacity of the human spirit." (Booklist)
Being an American of Vietnamese heritage, this book peaked my interest as hearing of the ways God worked in this woman's life. It is a very enlightening account of the things she endured in South Vietnam during the war and how she came to America to build her family, only to be called by God to return back to Vietnam as a missionary years later. Great inspirational listening and she gives great insight on how Christians can best display their faith and grace without seeming "high and mighty", but humble and forgiving.
