Book Beginnings: In the Shadow of the Banyan

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

In the Shadow of the Banyan by Vaddey Ratner

"War entered my childhood world not with the blasts of rockets and bombs but with my father's footsteps as he walked through the hallway, passing my bedroom towards his."

It was ironic that initially, Raami's father, a prince, was excited about the Cambodian revolution. He thought the ideals sounded great. Too bad the ideals were so fleeting.
