"As Saigon fell in 1975, the Nguyen family, Mai and Set and their three children, escaped by helicopter from the roof of the U.S. embassy, but they were separated. Mai, with her two smaller children, went alone to Guam and eventually to Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania. Set and Vinh, their older son, were taken to a camp in the Philippines. Set eventually was settled in California. Long months went by. Separated by 2,500 miles, Mai and Set began to adapt to American culture. But with determined faith and hope and help from friends, the Nguyens never gave up on their search to find each other. This historical novel tells their story--the story of many Vietnamese refugees to the United States. At its heart, it is also the story of many people from many lands who have contributed to MULTICULTURAL AMERICA."--Publisher.
