    Ru PDF/EPUB ↠ Hardcover Ru PDFRU translated in Vietnamese means lullaby This was a poetic and beautiful short narrative with some very sad moments in the life of Ru a young girl who immigrated from Vietnam to Canada The hardships that were taken to get here was a cost itself but shedding the Vietnamese cloak of culture which defined her people truly was a stripping of one's identity The heartache of leaving what you know however twisted and sadistic it was and being turned around in different directions trying to recalibrate oneself with this new reality I'm stunned by the beauty of this prose and saddened by the life she had to live before she got to a place reflective of that gentle sway 5
