The Mountains Sing

Sacrifice. The first novel in English by poet Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai is titled, The Mountains Sing. The multigenerational story of the rise and fall and rise of members of the Trần family in Việt Nam will appeal to any reader or book group that loves to dive into fine writing that draws readers into the lives of people who sacrifice and suffer to obtain a better life. We follow members of the family from their land ownership and wealth prior to the rise of the Communists through the devastation that came from land reform and the wreckage of the Việt Nam War to the present time. This well-told story pulls us into family life and the actions taken to survive and reunite after separation. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase The Mountains Sing from
