Roy Hoffman…this novel seems reminiscent of The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, with its hurt souls nursing private truths and yearning for love. "One silence had led to another, and eventually the silences became the life preservers dotting the dangerous ocean between them," Linda says of one of the secrets held fast by the novel's richly drawn characters. Truong explores—and explodes—these secrets at a captivating pace…a moving investigation of invented families and small-town subterfuge, a search for self heightened by the legacy of Vietnam and the flavors of language.
