    Readers’ Reviews This story spans many countries and many people's lives. Con Cú provides poignant insight into the human condition with his scholarly ear on world history and politics while telling a tale of several brave souls who were forced to face serious hardships in the struggle to escape their occupied country. Also depicted are glimpses of hardened villains and the raw depravity of the human race, and yet moments of passion and endearing tenderness mixed with authentic heroism. The story is brilliantly told. I read the last three quarters of the book all in one sitting and was caught up in the narrative and the characters. Chris Turner, Wakefield, Quebec, Canada The novel really is a wonderful, touching tale of how the human spirit overcomes adversity. In the style of Hemingway, the author Con Cú has mastered the art of simplicity and economy of words, without foregoing the occasional stroke of poetic genius. I particularly liked the character of Minh Chau. Her... More > child-like charm endures into her adult life enchanting everyone around her, even if it only to mask the deep scars that she bears within her. Soldier, Lily, Peace and Pearls is an enduring and endearing tale that merits a wide readership. BPOTS, Cultus Lake, B.C., Canada An eloquent mix of the beauty and horror of life, and the triumph of human spirit amidst the tortuous and bloodier wars of recent times. A lively exploration of the human traits of hidden desires and profound love intertwined with the numbing atrocities that arise during war and corruption. Relationships span both exotic and familiar locales, a brilliant mosaic of human diversity and experience. Life’s wisdoms are revealed through golden nuggets that are delightfully sprinkled throughout this work, and this noteworthy one appears in the middle of the book: “The one thing that can guide you through the vicissitudes of life is understanding that kindness is the noblest of actions...” The writers understated style gently weaves this tapestry of life, trauma, love and bloodshed; and as the lives, experiences and relationships deepen - the writer’s passion for life, love, and overturnment of adversity come into full bloom and culminate in a poignant epilogue. The last line is both cosmic and enchanting! Reviewed by Phyllis Straub, Author of the Ordinary Adept, Olala, B.C.< Less
