Critically acclaimed novelist John Shors’ travels in Asia add texture to this affecting tale of two Americans in Vietnam. A tale of sacrifice, rebirth, and above all inspiration, Dragon House connects with readers on the most human of all levels.
When Iris’ father, a Vietnam vet, makes a dying wish that she take over the operation of a shelter for street children in Ho Chi Minh City, she agrees—and takes with her her long-time friend Noah, an Iraq War veteran.

"[T]his is the kind of novel (provocative, polarizing, exotic) that should stir book group discussion." (Publishers Weekly)
