The Voices of Heaven
A NovelBook - 2013
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 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 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.
