Historical Fiction + Contemporary Romance + VIETNAM!!!! = A Terrific Read!
I had an amazing time piecing together this 300 page novel. I loved adding the center section which extends back to Vietnam in 1945 at the tale-end of World War II. It not only helps the reader understand the complexities 20th century Vietnam and that country’s amazing story, but it also helps to explain the modern romance which makes up the rest of the story. Don’t worry, the romance is ALSO based in Vietnam and bathed in its amazing culture.
How did I do my research? By living in Vietnam for 10 years. By learning Vietnamese fluently. By studying Vietnamese culture and history IN Vietnamese. I do hope my experiences help to bring this book to life. But don’t worry, this isn’t some high-brow treatise on geo-politics. At its heart its a story of fathers and sons and the loves of their lives.
Please do pick yourself up a copy. And now, it’s so cheap, there’s no reason to pass it up.

I am truly honored. My novel, “The Reach of the Banyan Tree,” is being reviewed at the prestigious Tarentum Book Club in Tarentum, Pennsylvania. This is no ordinary book club. It was founded in 1901 for the sake of bringing ‘women together that are interested in Literature and Science, for the purpose of mental culture.’
Here’s the 2001 newspaper article which highlighted the group’s 100th year anniversary meeting. 100 Year Anniversary News Article
And now, in 2015, the group is still going strong and they are reviewing my book! How awesome is that? Oh, how I wish I could sit in on this! Too bad I’ll be 12,000 miles away.
However, my sister has been invited, and she was asked to bring some Vietnam knickknacks to help decorate the house, setting the scene for the review of the book based on Vietnam. These ladies go all out! They even asked my advice for what kind of dessert would be Vietnamese. That’s easy. Fruit.
On so on this Friday, October 9th, I am honored to be chosen for review at the Tarentum Book Club. I hope my story provided some interesting reading and stimulated some good discussion. I hope it was worthy enough for “mental culture.” That’s a mighty high task! But I am grateful and humbled that you chose my book.
I hope you enjoy!
My debut novel (4.4 stars/85 reviews on Amazon) will only be 99 cents on Kindle from April 1-7. There’s not much to lose and a whole lot of great reading to gain.
Here’s a few phrases that help describe it:
- Late coming-of-age-story
- Unlikely cross-cultural love story
- Anything but a cheap romance
- Set in modern day Vietnam and USA
- A “read-in-one-sitting” kind of book you can’t put down.
