    DescriptionIn Thong Tran's Vietnam, everyone is at war and no one is who they seem. But even a conflicted heart needs a home. Yearning for a true father and a cause to give himself to, Thong chooses independence, liberty and happiness - his tutor and the Viet Cong. It is a choice with karmic consequences he will spend the next half century criss-crossing the Pacific to outrun. Can Thong set down the bones rankling in his heart? And at what cost?

    Audrey Chin works with numbers as a financial steward by day and with words at night. Her mission is to tell the Southeast Asian story to an international audience from the point-of-view of a multi-cultural Peranakan woman in Singapore. Her debut novel, Learning to Fly, was a coming-of-age story set in the rainforests of the region. She is contributing co-editor of Singapore Women Re-Presented, which tells Singapore's social history from the perspective of Singaporean Women.Audrey is married to Minh and has been a daughter-in-law of the Vietnamese diaspora for thirty years. As the Heart Bones Break is distilled from the many diasporic stories she heard over that period. Find out more at www.audreychin.com
