Kim Dong Publishing House has released a Vietnamese version of “Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope,” the first book written by Jenna Bush, daughter of former US President George W. Bush.
The book, based on her work with UNICEF in Latin America and the Caribbean, has entered the New York Times Best Seller List immediately after publishing.
The book tells about the life of Ana, a young Latin woman whom Jenna befriended during her travels. She had contracted HIV/AIDS from her mother who died when Ana was three.
From then, Ana grows up with a blur of faint memories and secrets—secrets about her illness and about the abuse she endures.
And then she falls in love and gets pregnant. Her child is born without the virus, and at the end of the story, Ana has found a peaceful home where she can plan a new life for herself and her baby.
Jenna Bush tells of Ana's struggle to break free from the cycle of abuse, silence, and illness, just like many other children around the world who are marginalized or mistreated.
