Publisher's Summary

Haunted by a horrible memory from the war, and 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. As the story shifts between Charles' and Ada's points of view, their journeys become increasingly colorful and complex. 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.
