Absolutely LOVE this book. Really sad that more people don't know about this book. The story line is so tranquil and enduring. Basically, after the war, a French man adopts an orphaned vietnemiese baby. But as she's older, she needs to care for her grand-pierre. Having to go to the pharmacy, she begins to learn about his life before her time, and the romantic tragedy in his life. The story was incredibly endearing and I would recommend it to anyone.
