"Hurry, hurry or the soldiers will catch us!" Vanna and Vanthy ran for the hillside, sure that Vanneth was behind them. As they found cover for themselves, they heard Vanneth scream. Vanna parted the grasses just wide enough to see the soldiers carrying Vanneth off.

Based on actual events, this novel follows the path of Vanna's journey to the United States after her family was destroyed by the Khmer Rouge. She finds herself in Utah, immersed in a new culture and a new church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
