Bookworm.au.com

"This novel portrays the life of a young woman, Hung Van Thi Kim who faces corruption, the death of her family, and extreme danger, as she strives to save the lives of the homeless children of Saigon."

"The children deserve a safe place to live in, and the right to an education." quoted the Heroine.

"Lecherous villains menace her every move, and corrupt officials are determined to control this woman of the people. Thi Kim's strength of character, and her quiet determination support her in her darkest moments."

"Many courageous friends are bound to her troubled destiny, until finally Thi Kim finds true love and destiny gives her the peace of mind that she has been fighting for."

            


Excerpt

"Hung Van Thi Kim sat before her dressing table, thoughtfully brushing her long, silky black hair. She watched her reflection in the mirror noticing the changes in her expression, as her thoughts took wings, returning to the past.

Her reflection told her that she was still a beautiful woman. But sighing quietly she whispered, “My life has traveled down so many difficult paths. Perhaps one day I will find peace of mind and a man to share my dreams with. A new beginning, with family and children of my own.”




Professional Reviews

Wonderfully written
"The life of Thi Kim in "Angels of Saigon" is a testament to a woman's ability to overcome loss of family, imprisonment in a brothel and dangerous liaisons with corrupt officials. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel as it leads you through complex intrigues and Thi Kim's determination to build a future for the children of Saigon. Wonderfully written."















Carol De Candia.

















Demonstrates the strength of friendship
"The essence of Thi Kim's survival is a lesson to us all. She faces each obstacle with courage and is empowered by her enemies, by never accepting defeat. Thi Kim's life demonstrates the strength of friendship and she is rewarded by great love with the merchant, Le Xiang. A great first novel."















Kevin Collins.

















It brought tears to my eyes
"Angels of Saigon" expresses the suffering of millions of women during the war in Vietnam. Thi Kim Van Hung's struggle to survive is so vividly alive and truthfully portrayed; it brought tears to my eyes." Congratulations

I really enjoy reading Angels of Saigon. If you can say that you enjoyed a book with such a terribly, sad story. But the truth is not always pleasant to read.let's say it was an eye opener-to what is happening in Vietnam.So I found it very interesting and informative.

Well I really enjoyed it, as it brought that era right into my living room. I felt that I was experiencing the events as they unfolded. It was easy to read and kept me captured-wanting to know more. Oh, what a sheltered life we live.
Fraser Bone. 9th September, 2001.
