Spirit of a Hummingbird is an uncompromising look at family trauma, betrayal, fear, and helplessness and an inspiring testament to resilience, healing, and forgiveness.
“Raw, compelling, and unapologetic. This brilliantly written original narrative takes you on an inspiring journey of resilience and perseverance. A must-read!”
—Calvin Singh, Emmy-nominated TV producer
“Raw and real, this memoir by Felicia Thai Heath recounts her tumultuous childhood as the daughter of a teenaged immigrant mother and a prominent gangster. Her story will grip you from the first page, as she sweeps you through the hardships she and her mother and siblings endured in a life that few can imagine. Outstanding debut.”
—Lyn Liao Butler, author of Red Thread of Fate
“Deftly weaving personal history with the history of Chinese-Vietnamese gang violence in downtown Boston during the late ’80s and early ’90s, Felicia Heath has penned a remarkable account of a childhood on the run not just from law enforcement but from a father whose unpredictable actions threatened to collapse the foundation of their family unit. Gripping and gut-wrenching, this is an unforgettable memoir of resilience and fortitude in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.”
—Ly Tran, author of House of Sticks
