Geri Riordan is adopted, half-Vietnamese, eighteen, and a piano prodigy. She also feels as if she doesn't know who she really is, and when her adopted father dies, she begins to search for her biological father. The trail leads into the redwood forest the Riordans have owned for generations, to a 'Nam vet who lives there. But he doesn't want to talk to her, and Geri must convince him to give her the answers she's looking for. Written by Kathy Li

Lea Salonga made this a ten! Want to see more of her.
17 June 2001 | by (Scotts Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

An excellent story about some of the Vietnam war vets. These were the homeless a few decades back. The serious music was inspiring. I believe Ms. Salonga played herself. I knew that she was a singer but her piano playing showed real musical training.
