'I loved this book so much' REESE WITHERSPOON

---

In 1987, Mina Lee flies from Seoul to Los Angeles to start a new life.

Thirty years later, Margot Lee speaks to her mother for the last time.

Between these two moments extends a lifetime of secrets. These are stories of unexpected loves and devastating losses. Of choices made and those left behind. Of a mother and daughter who have always struggled to understand each other.

These are stories waiting to be told, before it's too late.

Reminiscent of Celeste Ng's page-turning meditations on identity, this searing mother-daughter story explores the diverse and unsettling realities of being an immigrant in America.
