The author, Susie Finkbeiner, saved space for the reader to feel the vulnerability and emotions of the story and its characters. This was important because there are many emotions that flooded my senses as I read this book. Simply the effects of war themselves were enough to stay in my mind for awhile. It's an time that I continue to learn about and it never fails to stay with me. And Finkbeiner does such a fantastic job in weaving authenticity throughout this story - so much so that it can almost easily be confused with being a true story.
While I enjoyed the multiple POVs, I do wish we could have also had Minh's POV in order to further experience the story from each experience and angle. I think it would have added even more richness to the story especially because adoption is at the center of it.
I recommend this book to any reader who enjoys stories of family dynamics - it is definitely worth the read.
