If you’ve visited Cambodia, you will appreciate this haunting novel about Teera who returns to Cambodia after growing up in the US. Raised by her aunt, she returns because of a mysterious letter written by “The Old Musician.” Memories from the past sweep her up in the struggle Cambodia had during the time of the Khmer Rouge. Both her memories of childhood before emigrating to America, and those of the Old Musician, who was forced to commit atrocities on his fellow Cambodians by the Khmer Rouge are heartbreaking and, yet the book ends with the positive spirit felt in Cambodia today.

Sentences are overly descriptive, in my opinion, and made following the plot cumbersome; and I lost interest in what could have been a really good historical fiction.
