"This evocative debut novel is a well researched exploration of Vietnam between 1963 and 1975, when the United States pulled out of the conflict. Like Marianne Wiggins's Eveless Eden and Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried before it, Soli's poignant work will grab the attention of most readers. A powerful new writer to watch."—Library Journal (starred review)

"The strength here is in Soli's vivid, beautiful depiction of war-torn Vietnam, from the dangers of the field where death can be a single step away to the emptiness of the Saigon streets in the final days of the American evacuation."—Booklist

"Suspenseful, eloquent, sprawling...This harrowing depiction of life and death shows that even as the country burned, love and hope triumphed."—Publishers Weekly

"A haunting world of war, betrayal, courage, obsession, and love."—Tim O'Brien, author of The Things They Carried
