Informative and very well written, you will learn a lot about Cambodia

This novel was recommended to me and I thought I would continue the favor. This is a fast, easy read, told by the perspective of a little girl who lived through the Cambodian Civil War and the Khmer Rouge. I didn't know much about this time in Cambodia and the narrative is written so well you feel like you are there. Throughout the novel there are many references to Cambodia stories/poems that paint a beautiful picture of Cambodian culture. I would recommend this and I am glad to have read it.

I realize the author spent alot of time and effort, however, as an historical account of Cambodia's Kymer Rouge period, it leaves the horror out in this emotional second hand story from an eight year old's perspective. Recommended for young people, as the bloody parts are absent and only hinted.

    Beautifully written novel...

    Vaddey Ratner reveals her story of the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge through the eyes of seven year old Princess Raami. It is closely based on her childhood experience living in Cambodia. I would highly recommend this beautifully written novel.
