Not long after the last American troops leave Vietnam, siblings Anh, Thanh and Minh embark on a perilous boat journey to Hong Kong. Their parents and four younger siblings make the crossing in another vessel, but as weeks go by it becomes clear that only one party has survived. Anh, Thanh and Minh suddenly find themselves alone in the world, without family or home. They travel on, navigating refugee camps and resettlement centres until, by a twist of fate, they arrive in Thatcher's Britain. Here they must somehow build new lives with only each other to turn to, but will that be enough in a place that doesn't seem to want them? In this piercing debut, the siblings' faltering journey is deftly interwoven with the voice of their lost younger brother, Dao, following them from a place between the living and the dead, and the records of an unknown researcher intent on gathering together the strands of their story.
