Book # 22 - This Burns my Heart

This Burns my Heart
Samuel Park
Finished 4/5/2012

Soo-Ja Choi, a beautiful young Korean woman, dreamt to be a diplomat one day. Her parents dreamt of finding her a good husband. What seemed to be a compromise changed the course of her life. She lived her life with determination and a strong will to overcome all the suffering. She became a dutiful wife, an obedient daughter-in-law, a loving mother. She felt an emptiness in her heart, which can be filled only by her one true love.

Set in 1960's Korea, the changes in Soo-ja's life reflected the changes in her country's history.
