  • A Rare Gem I will never forget!

    “The Mountains Sing” is a glorious novel which sweeps across land, generations and hearts. This is a novel you must open and absorb and get to know. Intimately! Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai is someone you must get to know because you can feel the pulse of her novel being of generous mind and spirit, even though it is about her families experience with the Vietnam War!! To be a witness was a privilege! Both Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai & “The Mountains Sing” will leave you feeling inspired! Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai writes this story as if she is making a call to your soul to bring peace to the world! She wants us to read between the lines, and see and feel even more than her words! It is her writing that grabs you and won’t let go! She pours this very essence onto her pages! You walk this journey with her. You weep, you bleed, you ache, yet....you still look up at the sun! Quế Mai’s call to peace is heard as we flip the pages!! I trust that as her novel made its way around the globe, hearts are being moved like mountains and they are singing!! “The Mountains Sing” has a clear message. I believe this book is a gift to those who read it! To know more about Quế Mai is an honor! She is an entrancing author! “The Mountains Sing” needs to be read by everyone! It is rare gem that I will never forget.

    I just loved this book ! At first the character's names were confusing but reading on I couldn't put it down! What a beautiful story, sad at times but incredibly uplifting at other times. Highly recommend it to my book club pals.

  • The Mountains Siing

    The Mountains Sing is an epic story of Vietnamese history and culture. I really enjoyedvlearning about this culture from a females perspective as the only history of Vietnam I knew was from highschool history and movies which was always the male perspective. As a language teacher i hsve always taught that culture and language must be taught together and I always have my students learn that the cultures make udifferent yet also bind us a people of one world and that accepance is understanding. Thank you for King me laugh and cry with this beautiful yet truthful novel about the hardships of war.

    Thanks for your feedback!
