"Portrays the struggles of a Cambodian farming family against the extreme patriarchal attitudes of their society and the cruel and dictatorial family father, set against a rural community that is slowly being exposed to the modern world and its values. The book spans the period from 1973, just before the Khmer Rouge genocide, to 2015"--

This book is broken into six chapters, each told from the point of view of a different member of a Cambodian family, that jump backward and forward in time. At only about 200 pages there is a lot of pain and struggle in their stories but there is also a lot of strength and hope, especially in the tale of the youngest daughter.
