Format: Paperback
Soldier, Lily, Peace & Pearls is the kind of story that appeals to me these days - people who are in way worse circumstances than I overcoming the odds. I also found it historically interesting in that I remember the days of the Vietnamese 'boat people', and our church "adopted" a Vietnamese family around 1980 or so. This story gives me a better idea of what they must have gone through. The scene where the little girl needs to make a lightning-quick life-of-death decision for the survival of her family is one of the most powerful I've ever read. Also, the well-researched piece of the story that takes place during the bloody Rwanda War is just horrifying (hard to think human beings can act that way toward others but we are reminded every day that it's true). All told an excellent read.

Format: Paperback
This is a powerfully written book that follows the lives of 4 young people. They meet when South Vietnam falls and tells their struggles to escape to a new life. It is the story of love, honor, bigotry and hate. The abuse of power by the conquerors and also by the people who are supposed to be aiding in the rescue attempts. By incorporating Rwanda and the Gaza strip, Con Cu has shown that these traits are universal. I loved his statement that individuals are responsible for their own acts, entire ethnic or social groups are not. This is a book that everyone should read, and then question their own bigoted beliefs about others. People are ALL equally human!

Review: Soldier, Lily, Peace & Pearls, by Con Cu
A heartwarming story of an educated family transcending the violence of war-torn Vietnam to North America. Con Cu writes with compassion and understanding following the lovely Minh Chau from childhood to maturity; from Indochina to Canada. The novel’s plotline weaves and intersects as it deftly explores the depth of all its characters. When I finished reading Soldier, Lily – I felt like I had made friends with a Vietnamese family.
