"This warm, personal document by an ordinary Australian girl who worked in Vietnam does not pretend to enter areas of speculation and reporting where experts are confounded. It is simple, homely, informative, disarmingly honest, and clothes the shadowed image of a suffering nation with flesh, blood and heart. Out of it walk the unknown ones, the forgotten ones, the ordinary people of Vietnam.
In growing bewilderment Western readers have puzzled over millions of words about the politics and violence of Vietnam. Quietly, without fuss or humbug, Susan Terry lets in a little light and a lot of love. Here is something that is real, that one can accept and trust."
