The spirit of the dragon

Image of item
Book
At the urging of a Los Angeles detective, international rights lawyer Anna Carlson assists in a murder investigation. It's a personal request from Suk-bo Yi, a ninety-eight-year-old woman questioned in a mysterious death at a Koreatown nursing home. A stranger to Anna, Suk-bo has a tale to tell. For reasons of her own, she's chosen Anna-only Anna-to hear it. Suk-bo's story begins in 1937, when the Japanese occupying Korea force her to marry one of their own named Hisashi. In spite of their differences, they fall madly in love, pitting them against two violently opposing cultures. When Hisashi joins the Japanese Imperial Army and disappears, Suk-bo embarks on a quest through years of war, bigotry, and poverty to find him. But Suk-bo's unfolding history reveals more than Anna can imagine: an heirloom comb bearing an intricately carved two-headed dragon binding her to Suk-bo's past. Soon Anna will discover her own legacy at the heart of Suk-bo's epic love story.
