“The communist takeover of Cambodia is not well known, but it involved one of the nastiest genocides in history.  This memoir provided a unique perspective of one of the orphanages who experienced the terrors of the Khmer Rouge.  I had the privilege of reading this memoir and the story is absolutely breathtaking.  It’s a story of struggle, courage, and hope.  There were many powerful moments that moved me, and despite being a grown man I am not ashamed to say that I teared up multiple times throughout the memoir.  This is a story that will show you what it means to be resilient in the face of total despair.”
