By Baker Sybil
The answering machine picked up after the fourth ring. "Are you my father?" On the day Allison Morehouse walks off her job, her sister Mina calls from Korea, frantic and in tears. Determined to discover the truth about her adopted sister, Allison flies to Seoul, yet Mina-and Korea-are nothing like Allison imagines. Over the next three months, Allison and Mina will unearth thirty years of family secrets-and Allison will discover in Mina the sister she never embraced and in herself, the stronger w...oman she can be. This story of sisterhood, betrayal, and a tangled history of love and deception will carry you halfway around the world and deep into the hearts of two sisters whose fates were shaped by a long-lost love and the lies it spawned... and the history of a country and a man they never understood. "Sybil Baker is a startlingly good writer. The big cities and small villages of Korea feel alive on every page. And if you think there's nothing fresh to say about the fragility of family bonds, read Into This World. Only in the best-told stories, like this one, may we measure and forgive one another, and ourselves." -Nance Van Winckel, author of No Starling. "Vivid writing compels us to make this journey through the streets and temples of Seoul. Baker's fresh and graceful plotting fuels the reader's hunger to know what will happen next to these sisters in a family and a country torn apart by the past." -Jane Bradley, author of You Believers "A story of one family's secret history glimpsed through the eyes of two estranged sisters; Allison, a troubled woman still grieving the loss of her unborn child, and Mina, a half-Korean expatriate in search of her shadowy past. Beautifully told, Sybil Baker weaves a lush, finely wrought tale of two daughters in search of love, two sisters in search of forgiveness in the middle of a foreign land." -Cathy Holton, author of Summer in the SouthDetailed info »« Brief info
