Description

"My grandmother saw the emperor cry the day he lost his golden dragon throne."So begins Sherry Garland's emotional tale of a Vietnamese family forced to flee from their homeland to escape a devastating civil war. Set against a background of historical events, "The Lotus Seed" thoughtfully portrays refugees who have adapted to a different way of life in a new country without losing touch with their cultural heritage. Theirs is an American story about the continuity of family and culture.An Alternate Selection of Children's Book-of-the-Month Club
