An inspirational read, about overcoming tragedy and pain
on 12 October 2001
This book is a truly inspirational read. From explaining about the Vietnam War through to how this famous child beat the odds to become a mother and "normal" person in a societ which craves public-interest stories. As we get to know Kim and her family we can feel their pain and horror, then their faith and joy as Kim walks on an incredible journey of recovery and discovery.The biography follows Kim and her family as they come to terms with the Viet-cong, the Americans and then the ultimate horror of war. As Kim grows and copes with her own personal war we are reminded of the strength of the human spirit, and why we should never ever give up.I am recommending this to all my friends and family.
