" …vivid testimony to faith and the human spirit amidst chaos and daunting change."

— Kirkus Review

"This is the poignant, well-told story of Sawyer, who, at the age of 20, fled her native Vietnam just as the North Vietnamese stood poised to capture Saigon. Anh Sawyer tells of her harrowing escape, along with throngs of other panicked Vietnamese, through the American Embassy and onto a boat overcrowded with other refugees…This is a moving story, and thanks partly to the skill of Proctor (coauthor of Willard Scott’s The Joy of Living), readers will stay with it to the end.”
