In 1975, an American girl named Genevieve loses her mother when a plane full of orphans crashes in war-ravaged Vietnam. Miles away in the countryside, seven-year-old Lan, a Vietnamese girl, is forced out of her family home by her own brother who has joined the Viet Cong. Worlds apart, these two girls come into womanhood struggling to recover a sense of family- until their journeys suddenly converge.

Lan has grown up in the harsh realities of post-war Vietnam, but she yearns for a better life for her children. Meanwhile, Genevieve marries and, faced with infertility, decides to adopt a child from the country her own mother loved so deeply. But the uncertainty and risk of international adoption threatens to overwhelm both women before their hearts and their families can be healed.

Beyond the Blue is the story of enormous losses, unthinkable choices, and the transforming power of God's love for the children of the world.

My favourite character has to be Jeff Taylor ( Genevieve's husband) because he had a very optimistic character and always had faith in God, even when there were dark clouds. I love this book so much, because it gave me an insight into how bad the Vietnamese war was. I had no idea that there was even a war like that that took place, I'm so glad I read Beyond the blue . In my own opinion, I think this book is about having faith in God and learning how to put all your trust in your maker- always. And I learnt a few Vietnamese phrases too :)
