During the final years of the Japanese Occupation, when most Korean brides and grooms were married sight unseen, Gui-yong and Eum-chun strike gold by finding a love as sweet as sticky rice. But their love for each other and for their secretly adopted daughter is not enough, as they must soon accept the impossible, a mistress moving in to bear Gui-yong the male child deemed necessary in a society still smoldering in Confucianism. After the Korean War drives the family apart, it falls on the shoulders of their adopted daughter, Mi-Na, to figure out how to keep her parents' love burning through this life and into the next and ultimately make sense of the past.

Upon reading this book, there were moments of intrest and moments in where I flipped through several pages. However, the content and the context of the story keeps the reader invloved as you keep waiting to learn what will happen to the family. Quick read, would recommend.
