“An engrossing story of the ties among mothers, daughters, and sisters, sprinkled with humor and intrigue. Fans of the strong women protagonists of Min Jin Lee’s Pachinko or Nguyen Phan Que Mai’s The Mountains Sing will likely appreciate this.” – Library Journal

A lively, spellbinding tale about the extraordinary women within a Vietnamese immigrant familyand the ancient zodiac legend that binds them together

Daughters of the New Year is engrossing and exhilarating… unifying and contorting a family tied by love, debts, humor, and ghosts. Tran has turned the question of what a family can be into a complex, heartfelt mural of possibility.” -Bryan Washington, author of Memorial and Lot

Her stories, essays, and reviews can be found in such places as the Georgia Review, Joyland Magazine, Prairie Schooner, Harvard Review Online, and more.
