M D Fenton, a retired seamstress and devoted family member, has completed her first book "Luom’s Journey": a gripping and potent opus of self-discovery set against the backdrop of a country and a culture torn by violence and social revolution.
"I’m proud of who I am and where I came from. I hope this book will be a treasure for my family after I’m gone."
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, M D Fenton’s poignant tale will transport you across years and carry you through the trials and triumphs of a woman with an indomitable spirit and an iron determination to keep her family together.
As old ways of thinking clash with the new, and old superstitions and customs impose on the next generation, Luom’s voice, loud and unmistakable, rings out with the strength of faith for truth and fairness. Readers will be astonished at this breathtaking account of life in a state of perpetual war. Through their deeds and words, Luom learns from her parents exactly what is necessary to survive, and how far a woman must go to see her family endure. The hardest lesson, though, is for Luom to learn how to remain true to herself. For in Viet Nam, the jungle doesn’t forgive, and the people don’t forget.
Written in a stark, deliberate prose, A Path of Past to Present View brings the reader face to face with three generations, as they endure monsoons and fevers, fight the brutal Viet Cong, suffer the worst heartbreak imaginable and the summit of all possible joys. With echoes of One Hundred Years of Solitude and the Book of Genesis, both, it is truly an unforgettable journey, and a remarkable testament to the power of love.
Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase "Luom’s Journey" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
