Book Beginnings: Pioneer Girl

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.

Pioneer Girl by Bich Minh Nguyen

"In August 1965 a woman named Rose walked into my grandfather's cafe in Saigon."

I am one of few people in this world who likely would have guessed who this Rose may have been, even without reading the book description in advance: Rose Wilder Lane, daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder. But she was a world-traveling journalist, including covering the Vietnam War.
