Women's Fiction Historical
For fans of Min Jin Lee's Pachinko and Lilac
Girls, the heartbreaking history of Korea is brought to
life in this deeply moving and redemptive debut that follows
two sisters separated by World War II.
Korea, 1943. Hana has lived her entire life under
Japanese occupation. As a haenyeo, a female diver of
the sea, she enjoys an independence that few other Koreans
can still claim. Until the day Hana saves her younger sister
from a Japanese soldier and is herself captured and
transported to Manchuria. There she is forced to become a
‚Äúcomfort woman‚ÄĚ in a Japanese military brothel. But
haenyeo are women of power and strength. She will
find her way home.
South Korea, 2011. Emi has spent more than sixty
years trying to forget the sacrifice her sister made, but
she must confront the past to discover peace. Seeing the
healing of her children and her country, can Emi move beyond
the legacy of war to find forgiveness?
Suspenseful, hopeful, and ultimately redemptive, White
Chrysanthemum tells a story of two sisters whose love
for each other is strong enough to triumph over the grim
evils of war.
