Another great Canadian work of fiction. It's hard to say I "really liked" it, because I found it to be a dark, almost depressing novel, but it is very well written and heart-wrenching.

Two siblings are in Vietnam looking for their father who had come to visit the country years after being there to fight in the war. A third of the way (or so) into the book the narration shifts to tell the story from the father's perspective before returning to the daughter's POV. She is the main protagonist, though the father's presence is always hovering in the story, almost like a ghost.
