The Fourth Annual Global Ebook Awards pronounced "Once Upon a Mulberry Field" by C. L. Hoang the Gold Medal Winner in Historical Literature Fiction (Contemporary).
This is one of the biggest eBook awards, organized by Dan Poynter and decided by a panel of 200 judges ranging from book bloggers to book reviewers, librarians, book club & reading circle members, publicists, book shepherds, as well as professional critics and subject-matter experts in the category they prefer.

Set at Bien-Hoa Air Base near Saigon in 1967, the height of the Vietnam War and the Tet Offensive, as well as decades afterward, "Once Upon a Mulberry Field" follows one man's journey of self-discovery, fraught with disillusionment and despair but ultimately redeemed by the power of love.
