Abstract:

"When a dying mother hears the voice of her son thirty years after his death in Vietnam, she recalls the promise he made in 1968 as he boarded a military plane headed overseas that one day she would agin hear his voice. But is is not until she learns about the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., that she is able to decipher Jesse's mysterious message. Alicia realizes she must journey to the Wall to touch her son's name and honor his memory, and like a spark kindling a new flame, her decision inspires her warring children to join her."--Jacket.
