A truly miraculous story about a Vietnam refugee family's perilous journey to freedom as they face sickness, death, encounter pirates on the open sea, and the people who sacrificed to rescue them.
Settling in America the Chung family face many obstacles as they navigate a new culture, overcome poverty and make a new life for themselves in a foreign country. Through it all, they find faith, sustain strong family ties and ultimately obtain the American dream as their children graduate from college.
The book culminates with the author becoming a doctor with a degree from Harvard Medical School - the ultimate symbol of pride and achievement for the Chung family. An inspiring read!
