Editorial Reviews

Review

"Powerful," "compelling," "heartbreaking," "...a gripping story of self-doubt and self-discovery." -- Publishers Weekly.


"I loved it." -- Sarah Nelson, former books editor of O, the Oprah Magazine.

"Passionate and unflinchingly honest, this is a fascinating memoir that explores the tangled connections between Graham Greene's fictional version of wartime Indochina, and the real people there whose actions have haunted the author for most of her life. Danielle Flood is the child of an affair so much like the one described in the love triangle of Greene's novel, The Quiet American, that she is perfectly right to make her startling claim, 'I am a sequel he never wrote.' " -- Michael Shelden, author of Graham Greene: The Enemy Within.

"Holy, Moly, Mother of God. Ferociously honest and gorgeously written, Flood's memoir is the fiercely tragic story of her search for her real father, her knotted relationship with her complicated mother, and her hard-won understanding of herself. About memory, love, loss and time, Flood's engrossing debut shines like mica and is polished as platinum." -- Caroline Leavitt, author of Cruel Beautiful World and The New York Times best sellers, Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You.



"This book relates to the triumph of the indomitable human spirit in the most trying of life's circumstances, and, for that alone, should be read by anyone who deigns to call himself/herself a sentient being. Yeah, it's that good." - Jo Manning, author, My Lady Scandalous.<p>

"Extraordinary and spectacular...a story that can connect powerfully and poignantly with most of us."  -David Lawrence, Jr., international child advocate and former publisher of The Miami Herald.<p>

"...a work that will outlive us all: compelling, acutely honest and profoundly moving, without being whiny or cruel. That's rare." - Joe McGinniss, author, The Selling of the President 1968. <p>

"Danielle Flood is the daughter of a complex (woefully inadequate in this case) French/Vietnamese woman who was part of a wartime love triangle that inspired the one in Graham Greene's novel, The Quiet American...While the Greene connection may have lured me in, it was Flood's compelling "sequel" that kept me riveted as she chronicled her often harrowing childhood, an intensive search for her real father and finally the unraveling of impossibly fine threads woven between her parents's lives and Greene's fiction. Journalist and storyteller are in perfect sync in these pages." - Robert Gray, Fresh Eyes Now, Shelf-Awareness.

For much of my life, I was deprived of most of my family. My mother wasn't telling me who my father was or what she -- tall, beautiful, French and Vietnamese -- was doing in Saigon, French Indochina, where I was born, when it was run by the French. In 1948-53, my three parents fell in love there -- a terrorism cradle where five hand grenades were thrown a day and assassinations were quite common. I literally come from warring factions. After living in Japan and Thailand, I was brought to America as a small child, speaking Chinese because that’s what my amah (nanny) spoke to me. I learned English in Washington, D.C. and area public schools and was then taught by nuns in Baltimore, New York and in a convent in Dublin. It would take me decades to learn who I was, who I am. I feel the absence of my grandparents, a British aunt who died before I could find her, and the rest of the loved ones who were kept from me for decades -- all of my youth. After years of living at first a privileged life, then suddenly in fear and poverty, an Ivy League university became one of my alma maters. Thought it gave me an anchor, I often feel like a child of the world – stateless. Though mine has been a life of tragedy and sometime happy endings, the years of being a living mystery remain a part of me. The question of who I am, who we all are, is always there. THE UNQUIET DAUGHTER is my tale of love, betrayal and resilience.
