Two Great Reviews by Professional Reviewers!
Monday, February 25, 2002  4:20:00 AM

by Leonie J Campbell

"Read these reviews and then read the book- "The Baby Merchants". This story will touch the hearts of readers and remind us of how precious life is to us all."

By Leonie Campbell,
ISBN: 1-9300586-33-7,Genre: Human Rights
Stars out of 5: 5

"Without sound nave, but I never actually realized just how callous the social society is, and how shockingly barbaric the political branches are in Vietnam. The shady deeds such as the adoption racket selling babies to foreigners, and young adults being sold to individuals in other countries as well, is distressing to say the least."
"THE BABY MERCHANTS" is insightful and is definitely an eye-opener. I learned quite a bit from Ms. Campbell's compelling book. "THE BABY MERCHANTS" is based on the author's experiences while living in Hanoi, Vietnam during 1997 to 1998.
Every year, in most areas, thousands of Vietnamese girls are sold as slave workers by their own people in exchange for food or shelter. Babies and young children in orphanages are not taken care of properly, and many children are left unloved, and uncared for. Diseases spread, empty voiceless children crowd the ill-ridden rooms.
In the authors own words she describes the distressing truth using crystal-clear language, giving the reader specific details in the characters and their surroundings. This shocking novel, telling of the sickening reports of inequality, government and political incompetence and that of which speaks of individual and worldwide organizations seeking to improve the conditions in Vietnam, brought tears to my eyes."

"I highly recommend Ms. Campbell's book, but want to warn sensitive readers and at the same time, as that you NOT let this deter you from reading this remarkable book!"

"The Baby Merchants" by Leonie Campbell

"This is a touching story about the adoption and orphanages of Vietnamese children. This book contains the hardship of American women who try to help Vietnamese orphanages and villages and try to help stop the selling of children on the Black Market. It shows the importance that Vietnam has on male children and the country's political issues, i.e. the importance of money. It shows how poorly the children are kept in the orphanages and what adoptive parents have to go through in order to adopt children.
Ms. Campbell does a tremendous job in balancing the issues of Vietnam. She creates emotion for the reader through the experiences of the American women in the orphanages. The book is well written and is appreciated by the reader. The reader will not be confused by the politics of Vietnam. The plotline is well put together and moves throughout the story. The character development is good.
If you enjoy reading about Vietnam or international adoptions, pick up a copy of this book. It shows what could possibly happen over in Vietnam and what could happen on the Black Market with Vietnamese children."
