Editorial Reviews

Review

Mrs. Baer's book is an emotional account of a horrific time in Vietnam, and her story provides great insight into the lives of those who the war affected the most. Although she experienced death and hardship early and often, Mrs. Baer marched on with a strong head and strong heart. Her story emphasizes the importance of love, perseverance, family, and hope. I highly recommend this book to those who want to read about an amazing woman and her quest for happiness in a country at war." -- Bibliosy Blog
 
"A heart-warmingly honest book as told by Linda Loan Thi Baer herself. Born and growing up through the Vietnam conflict, Loan stays strong and true to her family and the responsibilities imposed by them. Truly memorable, Loan's struggle is mirrored daily around the world, in different cultures and countries. Highly recommended reading." -- Polly Halicki

About the Author

LINDA LOAN THI BAER was born Nguyen Thi Loan, in the small village of Tao Xa, Thai Binh Province, North Vietnam in 1947. When she was four years old, the Viet Minh attacked her village and killed her father, leaving Loan and her mother to fend for themselves. Seeking escape from impoverishment, her mother married a rich and dominating widower who was cruel to his free-spirited and mischievous stepdaughter. Loan found solace in the company of animals and insects and escaped into the branches of trees.

The ongoing battle between the French and Viet Minh eventually forced Loan and her family to escape to South Vietnam. When Loan was thirteen, she ran away to Saigon to work at menial jobs to support her family, and flee the cruelty of her stepfather. While there, she was introduced to bars, nightclubs, and Saigon Tea. At eighteen, she dated and lived with a young American airman. Two months after their baby was born, the airman returned to America, and Loan never heard from him again. She raised their son by herself. Time healed her heart, and she eventually found true love in a young Air Force officer, whom she married in 1968, accompanied him to the United States in 1971, and shares her life with him to this day.

She became a naturalized American citizen in 1973, and while becoming a mother and raising two sons and a daughter, obtained her high school GED and attended numerous college courses. Linda graduated first in her class from her school of cosmetology and received her certification from the state of South Carolina. She is the owner/operator of the successful "Elegance by Linda B." Beauty Salon in Charleston, South Carolina.

She is the author of Red Blood, Yellow Skin, and its sequel, Journey on Edge, to be released soon.
