ABOUT THE BOOK
“The Life She Once Knew” is about my daughter Queena mostly. You may remember seeing headlines as she was the “Bloomingdale Library Attack Survivor.” The memoir is centered on Queena’s attack and the events which followed, but will take readers through her mother’s view of childhood in Vietnam and her journey to the United States, growing up as an immigrant, and struggles of motherhood and being a single mom.
This is a remarkable story of survival and love, and proof that with God we can do impossible things, and yet still recognize the healing that comes with tragedy. The publication date is around November 10, 2020 and 100% of the book proceeds can support ongoing expenses through Hope Heals the Brain and Queena’s Medical Trust Fund.
