If You Lived Here: A Novel
by Dana Sachs
"Here is a real treat for anyone interested in Vietnam adoption - a well crafted, colorful novel in which the adoption of an infant boy plays a pivotal role. Ten years in the making, this novel is the gripping and lyrical story of the healing friendship between two very different women who travel together to Vietnam, assisting one another on their personal quests. In an enriching juxtaposition, the heartwarming story of the two women is interwoven with a lyrical depiction of their two shared countries, northern Vietnam and southern United States. Dana Sachs captures the deep longing to have a child, as well as the strong emotions created during the ups and downs of the adoption process. "If You Lived Here" is a dramatic work of art that will be enjoyed for many years." (Allison Martin)
