Weeping Under This Same Moon is based on the true story of two young women from different cultures whose paths intertwine with profound results. Winner of ForeWord Magazine's Book Of The Year Award in the Young Adult category, Weeping Under This Same Moon tells the moving story of Mei, a Vietnamese refugee who is the first in her family to escape during the exodus of thousands of Vietnamese "Boat People." Hannah is the angry American high school student who learns of the plight of the refugees and is moved to action. Weeping Under This Same Moon is a testament to the power of love and the spirit of volunteerism; affirming that doing for others does so much for one's self.
