A fascinating look inside one family's experience in early-twentieth-century Korea. The story was inspired by the life of the author’s mother. As a reader, I am not just learning about Korea that existed prior to the Korean War. Learning about the global impact of the Japanese occupation has helped me gain a broader perspective on the time period.
