Daughters of the River Huong

Stories of a Vietnamese Royal Concubine and Her Descendants


Uyen Nicole Duong’s Daughters of the River Huong takes listeners on a century-long journey into the extraordinary history of Vietnam, all seen through the eyes of Simone, a precocious and passionate teenager who reveals the lives of her Vietnamese ancestors. Beginning with Huyen Phi, the Mystique Concubine from the extinct Kingdom of Champa, to her daughters, Madame Cinnamon and Ginseng, and finally to Simone’s own mother, Duong gives listeners a compelling, historic, and sometimes voyeuristic view into a world few have experienced. From the monarchy to French colonialism, from American intervention to the fall of Saigon and Communist rule, the lives of these women are profoundly changed by history…and perhaps history is changed by them. The writing is poetic, the stories gripping, and whether you are a lover of romance, history, or the human condition, this novel delivers.
