Présentation de l'éditeur

Note: This edition contains editorial revisions.
The Glass Girls is a story about unlikely connections across time and culture. After being kidnapped by a neighbor, a young girl pens a story in her captors’ basement to survive the repeated sexual assaults. Years later, she passes the story on to her son who takes it with him to the Vietnam conflict. Richard Huntington; after suffering an injury on the battlefield is returned to duty on the Cambodian front. He is ordered to assess the damage of an illegal bombing campaign deep in Cambodia. During a rendezvous with a local translator he encounters five little girls who are destined for the sexual slave trade. He thinks about what happened to his mother. A decision is made: He deserts his unit and attempts to find safe harbor for the girls. His first instinct is to return the children to their parents, and locates the parents of one of the girls. He discovers the parents, living in extreme poverty, were the ones who sold their little girls to the slave traders in the first place. He also learns this is common practice. Unable to reconcile his own values with local culture Richard finds himself in over his head. Pursued by the slave traders and Viet Kong units he retreats with the girls deep in the Cambodian jungle until he can find a way to get the girls to safety.

Forty-two years later Michael is on a train in Germany. He is attempting to solve a small mystery regarding a story his grandfather told him growing up called: The Glass Girls. The Glass Girls was recently published by a German author, Michael is here to meet that author. Upon that meeting Michael is thrust into a larger mystery, a mystery surrounding the disappearance of his father, a father he never knew. Five women claim to have known his father and know where he is buried deep in the Cambodian jungle. An old boyhood dream of finding his missing-in-action father is suddenly in play and Michael is led out of Germany and into the Cambodian jungle by five women who along the way reveal the story of what happened to his father and why he went missing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An interesting read 20 août 2012

This story has very believable characters, you feel by the end of the book that you know them personally. The story is intriging and once you get into it you can not put it down, I read it in one sitting. For those of you who do not like jumping from the present to the past throughout a book you may not find this as exciting a read as I did but if you persevere I am sure you will feel that it was worth it. The end of the book bought tears to my eyes, that does not happen too often. I look forward to more books from this author.

Although there were editing errors, the plot was well done. I did not expect to like this book, but was so pleasantly surprised. Hopefully the second in the series will not be too long in the making. I look forward to it.

Great book although it seemed more like a short story. I wish there were more to the characters, although in this format it almost reads like a poem, open for the reader's reflection, interpretation and compels me to re-read.

My husband was with the 3rd marines in quang tri and dong ha 1968_1969. This story really touched my heart as I have a picture of my husband with a small Vietnamese child, her mother worked on base. It was her little face I saw as I read. Very impressed with this story, it will stay with me for a long time, just as that undeclared war has.

This was a poignant well-woven story. Not only could I not put it down but I found myself skipping ahead to future chapters and back to previous chapters. I love how the story is told from more than one point of view and was a story inside a story. The end was better than I imagined! This is one book that won't be erased from my kindle! I can't wait to see what other stories ESJ has written.
