Heart Wrenching

by pias6911 on Apr 1, 2007

Falling Leaves: The True Story of an Unwanted Chinese Daughter, is simply heart wrenching. It demostrates how culture, beliefs and faith can so destory one little girls'd life.

This sad, but interesting tale is one that all should read for it shows just how one little girl can overcome all the disapointments in life.
