Uyen Duong has completed a three part series about the end of the Vietnam War with this book. The books also deal with the resettlement issues that faced children who left Vietnam as the war came to an end. I didn't know about the earlier books when I picked this one, but now I would like to red them.

this book follows Mimi(Mi Chau) a successful, young lawyer as she tries to find out what happened to a childhood friend after Mimi and her parents left Vietnam. Nam has sent her occassional postcards, but none say where he is living or what he is actually doing. His story turns out to be rather horrific, but Duong gracefully tells the story in small, third person narrations.
