Abstract:     
In Vietnam in 1967, Brother Daniel is the only father figure his niece Kim Hong knows. They fled along with their family as Catholic refugees from the north when the French left and the Viet Minh took over. During the escape, the family became separate. He had been her father from the time she was five. But she is now seventeen, and American influences have pervaded the Vietnamese culture.

Brother Daniel is a teacher and takes pride in his rose garden where he seeks refuge from the world. He also knows that Kim Hong is romantically involved with one of her American teachers. He does not want to see her lose her culture and, worse, lose her.
