Book Description Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1999. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Le Ly Hayslip s extraordinary memoir of growing up in a war-ravaged Vietnam garnered high praise for the passion and suspense (San Francisco Chronicle) of its searing and human account of Vietnam s destruction (front page, New York Times Book Review). Now, Ms. Hayslip continues her remarkable autobiography, arriving in the United States as a young bride wise in the ways of war yet charmingly naive about the habits of giant, round-eyed Americans. Told in exquisite detail, Child of War, Woman of Peace is, in many ways, a timeless immigrant s tale. Ms. Hayslip recounts with humor and goodwill her apprenticeship as U.S. housewife in a land where kitchen sinks swallow food, and neighborhood church ladies strive to save her heathen Buddhist soul. Her uncanny ability to attract colorful characters - from con artists to despondent suitors - only muddles her search for the true peace she hoped America would grant her. Yet beneath Le Ly s amusing view of America, her emotions are torn between the promise of her adopted country and the land - full of pain, but also the pleasures of an ancient and beguiling way of life - she left behind. Home is more than a place, she discovers: it is a state of grace. Le Ly s rediscovery of herself, as well as her quest to harmoniously join the two poles of her universe, is a story all Americans should read, and no reader will forget.
