Listeners consider the central question at the heart of this historical novel about the Korean civil war: Does marrying to protect your family mean you are virtuous or mercenary? Narrators Greta Jung and Keong Sim tell the story of the difficult choices facing Haemi and Jisoo as they grow up in turbulent times. The story alternates between their perspectives on the aftermath of the war for both soldiers and civilians. The one thing Jisoo once wanted the most in the entire world, to be part of a glittering high society with the beautiful Haemi at his side, is lost to him because of his war injuries. Meanwhile, Haemi grapples with lifelong regret over her decision to choose filial duty over her love of Kyunghwan. Listeners will be drawn into this family drama.
