In The Shadow of the Banyan is the heart-wrenching account of a young girl and her family living in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, who were forced to leave their home and life as they knew it by Khmer Rouge soldiers.
Here is what some of our readers have to say:
atrocity, perseverance, love
Khmer Rouge terror
Horror, Courage, Love
beautifully told story
unbearable, relentless, hopeful
educational, inspirational, lyrical
cruelty, compassion, survival
And it was also a wonderful discussion book!
