At just ten years old, playing in the lush trees, starting mischief with the boys; Kim loved her family and friends, the sounds of the market, the tastes of the foods, she enjoyed life, and wished it would never change. What she didn’t know yet was all that she loved was about to be torn from her prying fists. "Wake up, wake up…" her sister yelled, shaking her. Looking out the window behind their bed, Vi?t C?ng marched just a hundred meters from her home just outside Saigon. Pop pop pop pop gunshots from the AK-47’s jolted their muscles as a full scale attack on the American Army base began. Their small home caught in the crossfire, they spent the night of T?t, the 1968 New Year, in the safety of a small dark makeshift cellar. The war finally came to an emotionally sad ending, the streets in crisis, people fleeing by the thousands. The North Vietnamese Army declared victory renaming Saigon to Ho Chi Minh City. April 30th, 1975…this was a day that will change Kim’s life forever. Forced into oppressive Communist life was hard and depressing. Kim’s dreams of an education in America were crushed, her husband taken to prison, her brother in law taken to a reeducation camp, their family business ransacked and closed by the police; food became scarce, money even worse. Stories of boat people attempting escape caught her attention. Such sad stories though, a coworker captured by pirates, beaten, and then tossed to the sea to die. A mother losing her children, drowning in the seas. The list goes on but her desire for freedom outweighed the risks. In less than a year she found herself being stuffed into a hidden compartment at the bottom of a small wooden fishing boat with many other desperate souls seeking freedom. The darkness, rancid smells, and thick air choked her lungs. Cramped, her body ached and below her waist was all but numb. Without warning the diesel engine kicked up louder and the boat started moving faster. Pah pah pah pah pah she heard in rapid succession. Bullets pinged off the side of the vessel, splintering the wood through to the cabin. Still, the boat did not slow. Again Pah pah pah pah pah. The sounds of bullets hitting the side of the boat echoed in her ears. Everyone jumped. The engines kicked off and the boat came to a dead stop. Oh my god they already caught us. Falling over into the dirty sea-ridden floor of the boat, fish juice mixed with unthinkable bodily fluids washed back and forth around her face. Reaching her hand to her side, feeling a sharp searing pain. It was wet, blood was everywhere. The shimmering brilliant lights of the spot lights and yelling faded into the background as her head became light, dizzy, as everything went black… Book Review 1: "I knew little about Vietnam other than living through the war myself. I watched the protests here at home and lost friends over there. One of my favorite movies remains “The Killing Fields” about the journalist Sydney Schanberg and his friend Dith Pran. While that movie is primarily about Cambodia, I believe much applies to Vietnam as well. This book opened my eyes to a whole new facet of the Vietnam war; the people; the villagers who had to live through it, not only when the US pulled out, but for years after as well. It is a well written and thoughtful accounting of the day to day life of one young woman. Her terror and hardships were heart wrenching. If you’d like a down to earth account of the war, this is the book for you. No who is right or wrong, just what was the reality for one woman. I would like to read more from Russ Katz. Thank you to Netgalley and Dog Ear Publishing for allowing me the opportunity to read this book." -- Tripower53, NetGalley Book review 2: "This manuscript tells an extraordinary story, a story that deserves to be told to as many people as want to know about it. And there are many facets of the present draft of The Principal’s Daughter that are very, very well done indeed. It is, up to a point, very effectively put together. The material is rich, that characters are vivid, and the narrative itself is riveting and moving. Whatever you do with this, keep Kim’s spirit alive. She is a Personage. You are lucky to know her. I am lucky to know something about her now. That character, that family, that place in the mango trees: magic. You got yourself a million acres of magic here, pal. Don’t screw it up! (You won’t, because you know it’s magic.) I don’t think I’ve ever read a piece of prose that so galvanized my attention--" -- Kevin Anderson & Associates Book Review 3: "This was a fantastic story about an inspirational woman, Kim who lives during the Vietnam war and experiences not only their quest for freedom, but also her own. Kim is a resilient soul whose dreams are destroyed and it is up to her bravery and hope to remake them. This is not a typical story and it is one that will both teach you something about Vietnam and touch your heart. Rich in description and food references, the world comes alive and while we will never be able to know these experiences, we begin to get a glimmer of these moments: both good and bad. Notes: I loved the book! I will be posting a review on my blog, utopia-state-of-mind.com, on December 7th and will update this review when it goes live. Additionally I will be posting my review on Netgalley within the next two days from now." -- Lili Hadsell, NetGalley

FROM AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR GAYLE WILSON comes a gripping tale of tension-filled romance and heart-stopping suspense. IT WASN'T OVER YET Susan Chandler's husband vanished without a trace…along with their one-year-old daughter. Now, seven years later, their car has been pulled from a river in some backwater Mississippi town, along with the body of her husband and an empty baby seat. The local sheriff is calling it an accident, but for Susan, things just don't add up. Major Jeb Bedford has one thing on his mind—to get his body back into working order and rejoin his Delta Force team ASAP. But Susan Chandler's quiet desperation echoes his own struggles. And somehow, protecting Susan and helping her discover the truth becomes more important than anything…

A Hidden Child's Journey Home Evi Blaikie. 111 her ... On Tuesday and

To survive the long shadow of the Third Reich, many Jewish children were placed in hiding, forced to keep their true identities—names, religion, places of birth, even gender—absolutely secret. Although these "hidden children" avoided capture and murder, many of their -family members did not, and their experiences marked them for life. Evi Blaikie's passionate memoir depicts a life lived in the shadow of exile. Evelyne Juliette was born in Paris to privileged Hungarian immigrants of high intellect and great passion. Scarcely a year following her birth, France would fall to the Nazis, putting Evi's family among hundreds of thousands on the run. Her father, forced to flee Paris and go underground, never again emerged. Her mother, Madga, an indomitable woman, managed to send her young daughter to safety in Hungary before being captured in a dragnet and imprisoned in a forced labor camp. Evi, just barely three, was eventually brought by an aunt to Budapest under her cousin's passport. "Claude Pollak" would be only the first of many identites assumed to protect the shattered remnants of this young child's life. Eventually reunited with her mother, Evi would survive the war and the chaos of post-World War II Europe, but not without tremendous cost: when life blurs with survival, when one is set adrift in perpetual exile, what does it mean to go on living? In Magda's Daughter, Evi Blaikie, a natural storyteller, deftly explores the many -influences—cultural, geographic, religious—with which she had to come to terms in order to finally embrace her own true sense of home and self. Advocate and board member of the Hidden Child Foundation of the ADL, Evi Blaikie lives and writes in New York City.
