Waratah: From the Ashes of the Vietnam War, Grew a Spirit that would not be Stopped by Ha-Le Thai is the author's story, a tale of courage, heartbreak, and new beginnings with the challenges that come with it. Ha-Le escapes the threat of communism and death when she leaves her country, Vietnam, on a crowded boat for Australia. While she is aware that it isn't going to be easy, she is determined to succeed. But her child, born of an interracial couple, is educated and ready to face life, so Ha-Le has to change her beliefs to accommodate her when her daughter prepares to introduce her boyfriend.

The worst form of pain that Ha-Le experiences is her heartbreak. Now she must choose how to face a new form of threat, of rejection and silent death. Does she have the courage to start all over again? The author tells her story and shares the common experiences of refugees and the effects of war and communism. The author writes with a simplicity of style that makes the narrative addictive and her manner of exploring her emotions with insight will be an added delight for readers. Waratah: From the Ashes of the Vietnam War, Grew a Spirit that would not be Stopped is a memoir that redefines grit and resilience and explores what the human spirit can endure. Written in beautiful prose and featuring scenes of adventure, it is emotionally charged and filled with wisdom for expatriates. A true story that reads like an exciting fictional tale.
