The only in-depth study of the first generation to grow up in post-segregation America, it combines culture and politics into a pivotal work in American studies.

As a young child, Lac Su made a harrowing escape from the Communists in Vietnam. With a price on his father's head, Lac, with his family, was forced to immigrate in 1979 to seedy West Los Angeles where squalid living conditions and a cultural fabric that refused to thread them in effectively squashed their American Dream. Lac's search for love and acceptance amid poverty—not to mention the psychological turmoil created by a harsh and unrelenting father—turned his young life into a comedy of errors and led him to a dangerous gang experience that threatened to tear his life apart. Heart-wrenching, irreverent, and ultimately uplifting, I Love Yous Are for White People is memoir at its most affecting, depicting the struggles that countless individuals have faced in their quest to belong and that even more have endured in pursuit of a father's fleeting affection.

He soon becomes aggressive toward her, but she doesnt want to give up. Loving him felt right, but she found that staying with him was wrong. The pain of having to let go of the one soul who made her visible and whom she would forever feel connected to forever was a heart-wrenching decision she had to make. Years later, she receives a letter that doesnt excuse his actions but helps her understand why his soul was so sad, confused, and chaotic.

White Picket Fences
Author: Amy Julia Becker
A Gentle Invitation into the Challenging Topic of Privilege The notion that some might have it better than others, for no good reason, offends our sensibilities. Yet, until we talk about privilege, we’ll never fully understand it or find our way forward. Amy Julia Becker welcomes us into her life, from the charm of her privileged southern childhood to her adult experience in the northeast, and the denials she has faced as the mother of a child with special needs. She shows how a life behind a white picket fence can restrict even as it protects, and how it can prevent us from loving our neighbors well. White Picket Fences invites us to respond to privilege with generosity, humility, and hope. It opens us to questions we are afraid to ask, so that we can walk further from fear and closer to love, in all its fragile and mysterious possibilities.

Our Love Journey
Author: Barbara J. White
Publisher: Xulon Press
Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your Mighty acts. -Psalm 145:3-4 NASB This is our love story: the memoirs of a modern day Aquila and Pricilla, a husband-and-wife team who ministered in the pastoral ministry, followed by travelling to the nations. Our love story is amazing. It is matchless and completely unique because of the Father's love and plan for Gordon and me. Only He could take a young Canadian girl from the east coast of Canada, affected by insecurities from a broken home, and match her with a young man from South Wales. We were born into different cultures, family backgrounds, and upbringings. How could our paths cross? Who could arrange such a marriage? How in the world could a young woman in the western hemisphere meet this handsome, dark haired young man thousands of miles to the east, separated by the Atlantic Ocean? Only our Heavenly Father could initiate and bring together such a union. We had one important factor in common--we both loved the Lord and were committed to do His will. We both felt we should share the mighty work and ministry God wrought through His grace and gifting upon our lives. Our love story is a beautiful journey we shared for fifty years, and I want to motivate and encourage you to follow God's unique plan for your life. I pray you will seek the Lord with all your heart and follow the beautiful journey the Father has planned in love for you.

Emerson follows, determined to reclaim his betrothed. Surprised when she refuses to return with him, he realizes that in this new country he has come to call his own, duty is no longer enough. He must learn to open his heart and soul to something greater... before he loses all he should have been fighting to hold."--P.  of cover.
