Danielle Flood, a journalist born of the wartime love triangle that inspired the one in Graham Greene's The Quiet American, searches for her father after surviving a bizarre youth of privilege, estrangement and cruelty. As she yearns for her father's love and presence, Danielle's beautiful French and Vietnamese mother leaves her in burlesque house dressing rooms in the American Midwest, in convent schools in Long Island and Dublin, and with strangers in New York City. Meanwhile she lies to Danielle about their past for decades in this sometime-humorous near-tragic love story between a daughter and a mother and more. In the end we learn if Flood's journey through the truth of what happened between her parents in early 1950's Saigon satisfies her life-long quest for who she is.

"Powerful," "compelling," "heartbreaking," "a gripping story of self-doubt and self-discovery." --Publishers Weekly

The Unquiet Daughter by Danielle Flood is the true story of an exceptional woman. It takes the reader on an amazing journey. Exotic,mysterious, exciting,and romantic.Bravo Danielle Flood. It's a classic.” - Oscar-nominated actor Elliott Gould

"When I was 13 or so, the Vietnam War in full flower, reading Graham Greene's The Quiet American let me appreciate fiction in a whole new way. Years later, Danielle Flood's riveting memoir-cum-mystery-story has let me appreciate Greene and his novel - and the intersections of fiction and nonfiction - in new ways. Such a story! And so beautifully told." - Kurt Andersen, novelist, host of the public radio show Studio 360
