Inge Sargent, author of "Twilight Over Burma" a fascinating book, read the synopsis on my book board. She was studying abroad met another foreign student and it wasn't after they married she found out he was a Burmese prince. He was taken in the overthrow of the government by the military and never heard from again. She managed to escape with her two young daughters, and she was the German teacher at my high school in Boulder, Colorado for many years. A fascinating and courageous woman.

My french teacher Mme. Theisen in high school was always telling me to read this book. It inspired her to change her classroom/the world
