shadow“In the Shadow of the Banyan, is the story of  a 7-year-old Cambodian girl named Raami  and her struggle to survive under the Khmer Rouge.

The author, Vaddey Ratner was five years old when the Khmer Rouge came into power. For four years she lived under the brutal regime before escaping to the United States.

“Ratner’s remarkable debut novel transforms her childhood experiences into the finest of literary fiction . . . A powerful testament to the tenacity of love and family in the face of unspeakable inhumanity.”
