Published by Thomas Nelson on Brilliance Au New Quantity Available: 2. I just finished this book about a Chinese family who escaped from Communist Vietnam in the late 70s. Very moving and informative, it is an amazing story of God's providence. As a teen I faintly remember hearing about the "boat people" but had no idea what they experienced. And sadly, I probably didn't care beyond a fleeting moment of sympathy.
This book will take you where they traveled and show you what it meant to them to come to America. Very much worth the read. A Story of Loss, Rescue and Redemption. Where the Wind Leads was one of those books for me. It's not fiction, or even a biography, but a memoir.

For me, it was also a history lesson. Where the Wind Leads tells the story of a family - a well-to-do Chinese family - who happened to live in South Vietnam.

Through various set-backs and wars, they had managed to prosper, but the Vietnam War which ended with the takeover by Communism, proved to be the one storm they could not ride out. I grew up during the Vietnam War - living an insulated life as many of us did - we heard of terrible things, of young men killed, of anti-war demonstrations, but we did not hear the story as told by a Vietnamese family.
And I'd heard of the "boat people" - those who were sponsored by churches in America, starting over in a new land. But that sentence covers most of what I knew.
A Refugee Story - National Association of Evangelicals
Vinh Chung tells the story from a different perspective - as one of the youngest children in a large family, and with the memories of his family to help him. He tells the story of the money it took to bribe officials to leave, the fear of boarding a boat that was barely sea-worthy, for an unknown future, of moving slowly through heavy waves with no land in sight, through pirate-infested waters.
And then, when the joy of land appeared, to find it patrolled by inhospitable soldiers, because of the thousands of refugees who had already come. This is a story of hardship and hunger and fear and courage, but as you continue to read, you realize that it's also a story of God's grace.
