Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595356516, Paperback)

A Journey in Time is a nostalgic journey into the lives of a Burmese family during a period of intense political strife and turmoil.Since Burma lost its royalty and independence after the Anglo Burmese Wars in 1886, the fight for freedom never really ceased for its people. Burmese Nationalists, like Bogyoke Aung San, seize the opportunity to regain independence with the Japanese invasion of British Burma during World War II. Nonetheless, an oasis of peace is enjoyed by its people with the establishment of the rule of law in the country. Burma enters the world stage as the biggest exporter of rice, and its rich resources are developed on an unprecedented scale. Journey in Time chronicles this period in the lives of the Myaing family and their friends as it highlights the fascinating cultural and personal details that make them unique and interesting.Author Wai Wai Myaing confidently brings her loved ones to life as she describes their simple joys, aspirations, the worries that beset them, and the gentle Buddhist religion that guides them through their lives with dignity and grace.
