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. Download and start listening now!
