    The youngest of four children and the only girl, Vi was given a name that meant "precious, tiny one", destined to be cosseted and protected, the family's little treasure. Daughter of an enterprising mother and a wealthy, spoiled father who never had to grow up, the Vietnam War destroys the life they've known. Vi, along with her mother and brothers, manages to escape - but her father stays behind, leaving a painful void as the rest of the family must make a new life for themselves in Canada.
