Re: What are you reading?

Lasy night I finished reading The Latehomecomer; A Hmong Family Memoir by Kao Kalia Yang.

This warm, and beautiful story is about an extended familiy's flight from war-torn Laos, into the refugee camps of Thailand (where the author was born and spent the first few years of her life), to their arrival in America and the problems they had settling into a country so different from their own.

I love that the author explained so much about Hmong culture and also that she was able to convey the great love and respect she felt for her family especially for her grandmother.

Today I started reading Freycinet by Melanie Calvert. It is a mystery set on the east coast of Tasmania.
