'Phu?ng.Dawn or dusk, you could see mottled-brown sandpipers
running alongthe seashore, legs twinkling, looking for
food. Twilight falling.I followed their tracks, like twiggy
skeletons strewn across themarbled sand until they ended
under the frothing waves.'

Ihave to admit, the title of this book intrigued me the moment I sawit. 'Her: The Flame Tree,' is an undeniably compelling thing to calla novel. I had to know what this book was about and I found that,through reading it, the title took on a whole new meaning that Iwasn't even expecting!

Thisis a novel about life. A novel about love. A novel about friendship.All three are told through three interlocking stories through themagic of author Khanh Ha.

Setin Vietnam, 'Her: The Flame Tree,' tells the unforgettable story of awoman named Phuong and the men who changed her life in very differentways. Phuong's father, Canh was the first man who changed her lifeafter he adopted her as a baby from an orphanage.

Canhwas a eunuch, and, therefore, unable to have children of his own, sohe adopted the infant Phuong despite little being known about herbirth parents. As Phuong grew, she took in the lessons that herfather taught and the stories that he told her about his time as anImperial eunuch for the emperor. These stories are woven throughoutthe novel, as well as the story of a man named Jonathan Edwards, whomPhuong fell in love with as a woman.

Thisis a novel for lovers and for dreamers. The kind of book that youknow will stay in your heart for a long time after you are donereading it. I was so impressed and moved by the author's writing thatI found myself tearing up at some points and unable to put the bookdown to do anything!

'Her:The Flame Tree,' is truly a work of literary art like no other. Iencourage you to read this as soon as you can get your hands on it!
