From the Publisher:
Learning on the night of her sister's birth that a daughter has been lost in every generation of her Korean family, Janie assumes a protective role over her sister while learning more cautionary stories from her optimistic father and mythology-minded mother until her sister's abrupt defection years later reveals painful family secrets. A first novel. (general fiction).


"Chung delves with aching honesty and beauty into large, difficult questions--the strength and limits of family, the definition of home, the boundaries (or lack thereof) between duty and love--within the context of a Korean experience." (starred review) 02/15/2012

"[T]he unflinchingly honest examination of grief, anger, familial obligation, and love gives the novel a compelling emotional core." 03/26/2012

"[The] prose is crisp and unfussy." - Jan Stuart 04/22/2012
