"In The Shadow of The Banyan" by Vaddey Ratner ****

  • Audiobook
  • Cambodian author
  • Semi-autobiographical
  • Originally Published in 2013
  • Review:  A somber, spiritual, partially auto-biographical story.  The daughter of a king in Cambodia survives 4 years in work camps, loses family, loses hope, is tortured and starved. Somehow she survives, and this book is written to memorialize the horrors wrought by the Kmer Rouge.  A tough, yet touching read.  It is hard to face the cruelties which are wrought, and continue to be wrought in our world, upon fellow humans!
