I have to agree with the Los Angeles Times who named this one of the best books of 1999. It is one of the most hauntingly beautiful books I've ever read. Alfreda Vea seemlesly weaves his story between present day San Francisco and the Vietnam war. I don't want to tell anymore as it might spoil things for the reader!

A novel that makes mesmerizing leaps of imagination and of time and place as it moves seamlessly between past and present. Tells a powerful story of war and peace, guilt and innocence, suffering and love--and of one man's climb toward salvation.
