honest and touching portrayal of one woman's struggle,
By A Customer
This review is from: When Heaven and Earth Changed Places (Paperback)
This book is a wonderful source for those who are interested in the Vietnam War. It is more common to focus on the American experience in war; not often are the horrible occurances that Vietnamese went through emphasized in course lectures and other talks. The only problem I found while reading this book is that so many terrible situations that Hayslip went through are emphasized that the reader begins to be desensitized to the trauma. However, this book is a wonderful portrayal of one of the strongest women I have ever heard of; her background and noble quest to "lose labels" and reach out and help the people of Vietnam, one of the poorest countries in the world, should be heard.
