qMy heart sank. I dumped my fathera€™s ashes in the heart of communist Vietnam a€“ over a thousand miles from the death of his comrades a€“ over a thousand miles from the smile of that girl. How could I have been so stupid?q Only the bumbling, overweight, thirtyish, stay-at-home Martin Kinney could have mistakenly flubbed his dying fathera€™s request with such gusto. This thousand mile mistake awakens the ghosts of long-held family secrets and puts Martin on a fateful course with an unlikely romantic interest a€“ a young, beautiful, yet troubled Vietnamese woman named My Phuong. With its cross-cultural setting and unlikely romance, the 61, 000 word novel Beauty Rising creates a powerful, unique voice in todaya€™s literature. In a swift- moving, dialogue-driven prose which is funny, honest, tragic and unpredictable, Beauty Rising explores the depths of culture, family, and love as the Vietnam War, a generation removed, continues to hang on the periphery of society, cursing families and causing destruction. Review qAuthor Mark W.
