All My Silent Years
A story of sisterhood, survival, and belonging.

Born on a farm in Battambang, Cambodia in 1964, Sokha Sang enjoys the peace and tranquility of a childhood spent in nature and guided by the rhythm of her family’s Buddhist faith. At eleven years old, her family protects her from the civil war broiling around her until she’s marched away at gunpoint and forced into labor by the Khmer Rouge. Under penalty of death by this brutal regime, Sokha is ordered to renounce her family and the traditions she reveres. In desperation, she breaks the law, putting those she loves in jeopardy. Will her family ever forgive her?

All My Silent Years illuminates how fragile the thread of personal freedom can be when geopolitical forces conspire to dominate countries as people go about their daily lives, trusting that all will be well. Sokha’s story of sisterhood and survival sheds light on the universal yearning to return home—and to explore what “home” means to each of us.
