For the first time in the literary tradition, the contemporary woman's historical novel (post-1970) is surveyed from a transnational feminist perspective. Analyzing the maternal (the genre's central theme) reveals that historical fiction is a transnational feminist means for challenging historical erasures, silences, normative sexuality, political exclusion, and divisions of labor.

"The Green Belt" is the story of a Vietnamese newspaper reporter who journeyed into the central highlands of Vietnam during the war in the late 1960s and witnessed the traditional antagonism between tribal highlanders and lowland Vietnamese. Of interest and current significance is the narrator's account of the highlanders' side of the conflict, and his evaluation of alternative solutions that could have advanced the welfare of ethnic minorities. Socially relevant, the novel recounts a true ongoing conflict. Fighting over land and religion in Vietnam's central highlands is a human rights issue frequently making the news. Several thousand Montagnards, many of whom fought alongside the U.S. Special Forces during the Vietnam War, resettled in North Carolina in the period after 1975. This large community never stops growing as a result of the endless exodus for freedom. The compelling story of this novel, blended of fact and fiction, reveals the roots of unrest and is a unique voice advocating survival of indigenous peoples in mainland Southeast Asia.

Paradise of the Blind is an exquisite portrait of three Vietnamese women struggling to survive in a society where subservience to men is expected and Communist corruption crushes every dream. Through the eyes of Hang, a young woman in her twenties who has grown up amidst the slums and intermittent beauty of Hanoi, we come to know the tragedy of her family as land reform rips apart their village. When her uncle Chinh‘s political loyalties replace family devotion, Hang is torn between her mother‘s appalling self–sacrifice and the bitterness of her aunt who can avenge but not forgive. Only by freeing herself from the past will Hang be able to find dignity –– and a future.
