Spanning cultures, generations and continents, this epic tale of commitment and exceptional courage will rip at your emotions. A Korean and an English family drawn together by the greatest passion of all surmount incredible odds as they battle toward a common goal.
A true-life love story told with compelling attention to detail and a no-holds-barred grittiness. Capturing you with the shameful suffering caused by the Japanese occupation of Korea and the horrifying Korean War. Transporting you from enforced labour camps creating new cities in the Saudi desert to the gripping challenge of a terrifying ocean voyage on a small fishing boat. Woven within the story of two people coming together is the fight they must make to assist a close relative affected by the debilitating drug scene in the UK and then deal with a graphic denouement in the unforgiving world of Korean big business.
This incredible true story is told with the greatest attention to detail by the outstanding writing collaboration of an Englishman and a Korean, both with immense empathy and understanding of diverse cultures and personal relationships.
Mihee raises the benchmark for authentic pithiness and power in story-telling to new heights. No better writing is available anywhere today.
