Vinh Chung was born in South Vietnam, just eight months after it fell to the communists in 1975. His family was wealthy, controlling a rice-milling empire worth millions; but within months of the communist takeover, the Chungs lost everything and were reduced to abject poverty. Knowing that their children would have no future under the new government, the Chungs decided to flee the country. In 1979, they joined the legendary “boat people” and sailed into the South China Sea, despite knowing that an estimated two hundred thousand of their countrymen had already perished at the hands of brutal pirates and violent seas.

Everyone needs to read this book!!!!! It is a must read! If you were at least a teenager in the 70's you remember the boat people but the story behind the headlines is so much more. The message at the end is SO IMPORTANT!

Loved this book! It is a lesson on what we can all forget. Every young married person should read this. Also I love the positive comments on adoption.
