Indies Introduce


  • Wandering Souls, Cecile Pin
    Henry Holt and Co., 9781250863461, March 21, 2023 (Fiction)

    “A compact and powerful novel about a family torn apart by immigration. Set in the 1970s, three siblings leave Vietnam with the dream of living in the United States. It’s a story of survival, family, ghosts, and love.”

    - Sara Rishforth, Roundabout Books, Bend, OR


    “A haunting meditation on family, grief, migration, trauma, and survival, Wandering Souls is a gorgeous tribute to Vietnamese refugees and the healing power of storytelling. Poetic, harrowing, and hopeful.”

    - Alyssa Raymond, Copper Dog Books, Beverly, MA



    “This story of immigration takes readers from  the beginning, the characters’ lives before leaving their homeland, to the end and their life in a new land.  It’s developed in a way that accounts for the other wandering souls — ghosts and spirits that have been torn from life in the same way as so many refugees. All are wandering, searching for a place to belong.”

    - Tanya Mills, The Book Bungalow, St. George, UT
