Arrested in 1975, Vietnam's Cardinal Nguyên Van Thuán spent 13 years in prison – including nine years in solitary
confinement – under the country's communist government. Inspired by his remarkable testimony to Christian love, fortitude and forgiveness – virtues which John Paul II recognised when making him a Cardinal, just a year before his death. Ethel Tolansky and Helena Scott's biography of Cardinal Nguyên Van Thuan reveal a man of deep faith and undimmed hope.
