Spirituality, Inspirational Date Published:February 2019 Publisher: Book Art Press Solutions


“Living for a Higher Purpose” is an enthralling story that will keep readers interested at every turn of the page as it gives a unique perspective of the Viet Nam War from an eye-witness and survivor. Viet, the central character, has experienced firsthand the after-effects of war in his “broken homeland” under the Communist regime and struggles with “hunger, thirst, heat, sickness, waves, violent storms, sharks, Communists, pirates, ideas of cannibalism, and death” in his escape.

The book is not just a story of struggles, difficulties, and despair but also a story of hope, redemption, and transformation.
