Kathy Connor is one of 4,000 American civilians living in Saigon in 1963. Under the Wings of a Good Luck Phoenix is a compelling story of a twelve-year-old American girl living in Saigon, Viet Nam in a period historians call “The Watershed Year.” Kathy's first-person narration captures her journey from an innocent girl to a wiser self-aware young woman. She does this with the help of a Vietnamese servant and a lucky pendant embossed with a Vietnamese phoenix, a sign of peace and a symbol of understanding.
