Her early childhood was sheltered from the war and trauma that started to engulf Cambodia in the mid 1970s. Then, quite suddenly, from a childas perspective, the world ended. Mony and her family were forced to walk out of Phnom Penh and into the countryside. She describes the painful experience of the deaths of her family members, the profound depression she struggled through, her journey to America, and the joyful new family she has today. We often try to ignore what happens to children in war and holocaust. Perhaps it is too difficult for our minds to grasp. Mony tells her true life story of struggle, loss, and survival with a happy ending.
