Riassunto:

"The account of Dr. Chung and his family will inspire you to believe in second chances and miracles and the God who gives them both.” —Max Lucado, New York Times bestselling author

My name is Vinh Chung.

This is a story that spans two continents, ten decades, and eleven thousand miles.

When I was three and a half years old, my family was forced to flee Vietnam in June 1979, to a place we had never heard of somewhere in the heartland of America.

Several weeks later, my family lay half-dead from dehydration in a derelict fishing boat jammed with ninety-three refugees lost in the middle of the South China Sea. We arrived in the United States with nothing but the clothes on our backs and unable to speak a single word of English.

Today my family holds twenty-one university degrees.

How we got from there to here is quite a story.

Where the Wind Leads is the remarkable account of Vinh Chung and his refugee family’s daring escape from communist oppression for the chance of a better life in America. It’s a story of personal sacrifice, redemption, endurance against almost insurmountable odds, and what it truly means to be American.

About the Author: Vinh Chung graduated Harvard College magna cum laude and attended Harvard Medical School for his MD. Dr. Chung studied at the University of Sydney as a Fulbright Scholar and completed a master of pharmaceutical sciences. He also holds a master of the- ology from the University of Edinburgh. Dr. Chung currently serves on the board for World Vision US. He and his wife, Leisle, have three children and are expecting a fourth. They run a successful private medical practice in Colorado Springs.

Tim Downs is the author of nine novels, including the Christy Award–winning PlagueMaker and the highly acclaimed series of Bug Man novels. Tim lives in North Carolina with his wife, Joy. They have three grown children.
