Mark W. Sasse

Author Mark W. Sasseabout this book: Three generations of American men forever changed by Vietnam: Charles – grandfather – who parachuted into Indochina in 1945 to train Ho Chi Minh's forces. Overbearing C.R. – father – billionaire oil tycoon, who had two tours of duty in the Vietnam War. Chip – son – moved to Vietnam in 1998 as an aid worker.

Chip falls in love with a young Vietnamese woman, but a terrible accident lands him in prison, putting their relationship in serious jeopardy. With his relationship practically over and his prospects grim, a mysterious old man appears in his jail cell with his grandfather's WWII journal. Chip begins to piece together an unbelievable past he never knew, and as he does, the intersection of generations create an impenetrable force with which Chip must come to terms.

"The Reach of the Banyan Tree" is gripping tale of love, adventure, war, and the unbreakable bonds of family.

The Kindle Book Review calls it "stunningly written and deeply moving."

Literary R & R calls it "a love story with intrigue, action, and historical fiction, this is a beautiful book by a gifted author."

A note from the author: "I have lived in Asia for most of the past twenty years. Ten of those were in Vietnam, where I fell in love with the culture and people. This is the story I've been wanting to tell for a long time. This is my treatise on the Vietnamese culture and the tremendous impact that Vietnam has had on so many Americans. I hope you enjoy."
