A beautiful young woman. An American soldier. A war-torn country. Nearly forty years of silence.

Now, two daughters search for the truth they hope will set them free and the elusive peace their parents have never found.

In the South Carolina Lowcountry, a young mother named Katherine Ann is struggling to help her tempestuous father by plunging into a world of secrets he never talks about. A fry cook named Lisa is trying desperately to reach her grieving Vietnamese mother who has never fully adjusted to life in the States. And somewhere far away, a lost soul named Ernest is drifting, treading water, searching for what he lost on a long-ago mountain.

They're all yearning for connection. For the war that touched them to finally end. For their hundred years of happiness at long last to begin.

From the beloved author of The Spirit of Sweetgrass  and Trouble the Water comes this generous story of family, war, loss, and longing . . . of the ways we hide from those we love, and the ways that love finds us anyway.

From Publishers Weekly:

Seitz (The Spirit of Sweetgrass) focuses on two families irrevocably changed by the Vietnam War in her latest Lowcountry saga. All Lisa Le knows of her father is that he was an American soldier who died in Vietnam, before Lisa's Vietnamese mother and uncle moved to America, and that her mother continues to mourn him in their Georgetown, S.C., home. John Porter, of Charleston, is a veteran haunted by his past. His daughter, happily married Katherine, hopes to help by taking him to a veterans' event, but instead sets in motion a chain of events that will bring the two families crashing together. Seitz deftly shifts perspective among Lisa, Katherine, John and a koi fish in Vietnam who was once an American soldier named Ernest, giving her familiar themes—posttraumatic stress disorder, adjusting to civilian life, survivor's guilt, smalltown Southern living, aging, the quest to belong—sensitive and original treatment. For anyone touched by war, this tale of life after wartime should resonate strongly. (Mar.)

All rights reserved.From BooklistJohn Porter's horrific memories of his service in the Vietnam War have been dormant for nearly 40 years. But a brief encounter with an old enemy reopens old wounds. Now that he's displaying alarming signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, his daughter, Katie, vows to bring her father peace. But a weekend trip to a veterans ceremony intended to bring closure instead unknowingly sparks a chain of events that lead John and Katie to a Vietnamese woman named Doan Vien, who befriended John during the war. Doan Vien and her daughter, Lisa Le, disclose long-held secrets that threaten to unravel both families. This intricate story unfolds slowly from Katie and Lisa's points of view, but it is also interspersed with John's disturbing memories. Cleverly, Seitz offers only the tiniest of clues until finally serving up the final resolution. A heartbreaking tale that sheds light on love, friendship, and faith powerful enough to endure the atrocities of war. --Annie McCormick. Seller Inventory # 9781595545022
