In the Shadow of the Banyan

Seven-year-old Raami’s family members are minor Cambodian royalty who find themselves fleeing Phnom Penh as the brutal Khmer Rouge take the city. Her story — based largely on novelist Vaddey Ratner’s own experiences — is a devastating epic of love, suffering, and survival during a historic tragedy.  (And don’t miss this revealing interview about the author’s childhood and how she came to write the novel).
