Recent release "Journey to Angkor" from Page Publishing author Christine Farina is a tantalizing tale where Chandara, a man brought by his grandmother to Long Beach, California, as a child to escape the holocaust that massacred his ancestors in the tropical forests of Cambodia, starts to receive visions from that mysterious city of Angkor, specifically of a chilling "Face in the Trees," which sets him on a quest to rediscover his heritage and reimagine his future.

KAPAA, Hawaii, July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Christine Farina, an educator for over twenty-five years whose visit to Cambodia on a teacher's program inspired her, has completed her new book "Journey to Angkor": a moving story of Little Cambodia and refugees struggling between their past, their present, and their future.

Author Farina writes about the dying wish that sets Chandara on his course: "Setting the photo down next to the Buddha, he ran his hands over the urn which held the ashes of his grandmother, the only family he had ever known. He thought about the selflessness of her life, all that she had sacrificed to give him the life he had today, and he knew what he had to do. Her journey was not over, not yet. Her last words returned again to haunt him.

'Chandara, you must promise to take me home. I must rest with my ancestors if I am to find my final peace. Our family's legacy, the stone, must return to Angkor. And you, my dear child, you must return to your past in order to know your true path in life. Promise me, Chandara, you must promise me that you will take our family's heritage, and me, home to Angkor. It is your destiny. The Khmer will return to Angkor when you have fulfilled this destiny.'"

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Christine Farina's new book is an exploration of the inner lives of refugees, specifically those escaping Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge holocaust. Ultimately, Farina is writing about hope and identity.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting work can purchase "Journey to Angkor" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.

Ms. Farina will be having a book signing October 19 from 6:00-8:00 pm at the TalkStory Bookstore in Hanapepe, Kauai-the westernmost bookstore in the United States!
