The author received a gift from a Viet Cong veteran thirty-five years after the end of the Vietnam War, which prompted her to tell this story. This is a memoir about growing up with her uncle, Eddy, whose life path crossed with this Viet Cong veteran's in 1968. It's a story about the innocence of growing up during the fifties in California, the realities of the Vietnam War, and ultimately, about forgiveness.
