Book Details

Yewon is trapped. She’s stuck in Dalbit, the small Korean village of her birth, where the ancestral bones of her relatives live in her bathtub. Reeling from the loss of her father, she works long days at the convenience store and tries to keep the peace between her mother and sister, who are constantly at each other’s throats. But the nightmares are coming. Her little brother has just been conscripted into the Korean army, and he’s stationed near the North Korean border, sent to the front-lines of a decades-long war that they no longer understand. As news coverage about the North breaking armistice comes into sickeningly sharp relief, Yewon’s dreams about the ravaged hotel, where the war rages on, start to seep into her reality, and she is forced to confront the truth of her country, and the full weight of her inheritance.
