Paradise - - Living -

By Min Jin Lee (HarperColl­ins)

This ac­claimed his­tor­i­cal saga is told through four gen­er­a­tions of a Korean fam­ily in Ja­pan. In the early 1900s a teenage girl, Sunja, the adored daugh­ter of a crip­pled fish­er­man, falls in love with a wealthy suitor near her Korean home. Yet for a num­ber of rea­sons she ac­cepts an of­fer of mar­riage from a gen­tle, sickly min­is­ter pass­ing through the vil­lage on his way to Ja­pan. Her de­ci­sions set off a saga that re­ver­ber­ates through gen­er­a­tions.
