Book Description:

From Vietnam to America, this story collection, jewel-like, evocative, and layered, brings to readers a unique sense of love and passion alongside tragedy and darker themes of peril. The titular story features a love affair between an unlikely duo pushing against barely surmountable cultural barriers. In “The Yin-Yang Market,” magical realism and the beauty of innocence abounds in deep dark places, teeming with life and danger. “A Mute Girl’s Yarn” tells a magical coming-of-age story like sketches in a child’s fairy book.

Bringing together the damned, the unfit, the brave who succumb to the call of fate, All the Rivers Flow Into the Sea is a great journey where redemption and human goodness arise out of violence and beauty to become part of an essential mercy.

Review By LAWonder10:

All Rivers Flow to the Sea & other Stories, is a collection of eleven short stories, all related to Viet Nam. While very educational and at times quite interesting, most felt unfinished with the story leaving on a “cliff hanger”.

There was a large variety, ranging from endearing, sad, exciting, fatalistic, shocking, and from pleasant to inhumane and shocking.. One story in the center of the book I barely skimmed over because it was overwrought with ‘F-bombs”. A couple of the other had some foul language but the majority of the stories were PG-rated. I would have enjoyed reading a longer book with an ending on each story.

If you are a fan of “choose your own ending” adventures, you are sure to enjoy this one.

The stories contents are well-written. The characters seem very alive and realistic. The scenes are very vividly portrayed with words.

The Title takes some contemplation but is fitting. The Cover image is nice but not very eye-catching.

As a whole, I offer a Three Stars rating.

*This book was gifted me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
