Digging to Indochina
Though their voices and struggles are their own, each of the MacKenzies grapples with loss and disappointment and yearns for love and belonging. Together, they come of age and come to terms with the ways that memories and dreams can blur reality; they learn what it means to embrace family, flaws and all; and they discover how digging to Indochina can help them find their way home.
"Biewald's writing probes and sifts the buried storage vaults of family relationships with an archaeologist's precision."-Lois Lowry, creator of the popular Anastasia Krupnik series and two-time recipient of the Newbery Medal for her books The Giver and Number the Stars
"An always interesting, authentic story about the next generation, the children of Vietnam veterans-children who dig, not to China, but to Indochina. A good solid read."
-Grace Paley, author of The Little Disturbances of Man, Enormous Changes at the Last Minute, and Later the Same Day
