This is book number 2 in the Snow series.
Freedom comes with high risks and disillusioned dreams.
"Snow in Seattle" is the second book in the Snow series and is the sequel to Amy M. Le's debut, historical fiction novel, "Snow in Vietnam".
After escaping Vietnam after the fall of Saigon with her daughter and nephew, Snow finds herself living in the refugee camps of Galang and Singapore. When she receives news of sponsorship to America, Snow's dream of starting a new life of freedom in Seattle comes true.
Life in the United States, however, is nothing like the grandeur she imagined. Language barriers, cultural misunderstandings, and lack of resources are just a few challenges. Snow continues to push herself to the limit emotionally, physically, and mentally, to keep her family together and adapt to her new surroundings. She immerses herself into American society and the community around her. Along the way, she discovers not everyone is welcoming of the Vietnamese refugees and the soldiers she met in Vietnam have their own demons to face in a country that treats them as burdens, not heroes. Snow's quest to make Seattle her new home will test her grit and tenacity, her patience and love, and her willingness to forgive.
This story is dedicated to the refugees and military veterans of war.
