For successful lawyer Mimi, 1980s Washington DC is a far cry from the war-torn Vietnam of her childhood. Time and sheer force of will have allowed Mimi to put those turbulent years behind her. That is, until the postcards begin to arrive.

Postmarked from Thailand, each card is simply yet beautifully rendered in the hand of an artist identified only as “Nam.” Mimi can’t imagine who Nam might be, a prickly problem considering his brief notes make it clear he knows her quite well. Determined to unmask him, Mimi begins what will become a decade-long search for Nam. Her quest eventually leads her back to her childhood home in a small alley in pre-communist Saigon. For there she was beloved by a boy who dreamed of one day being an artist, a boy whose path diverged tragically from Mimi’s when the Vietnam War ended in 1975. Yet, as she digs deeper into Nam’s painful past, Mimi uncovers an inspiring story of courage, survival, and the indomitable strength of the human spirit.

    " I didn't realize that this was kind of a memoir written by a person who really is not a writer. I liked the book, felt it was well written in some parts and hurried over in others. Seemed like there was a lot more meat that could have been added. The story was sad. "

    " I loved reading this book but the ending was unexpectedly abrupt and somewhat disappointing. I was left wanting more "

    " The book felt rushed. It was a novella, but could have easily been a longer book, with more story development. Three stars because it was an enjoyable read nonetheless. "
