Uncle Hong-do arrives in Vermont and turns his teenage niece's world upside down then, too soon, he returns to Seoul. Time passes and his niece, now an artist, finds herself hemmed in, so she leaves for Korea to find the unknown part of herself.

'A startlingly impressive debut. This marvellous - and very moving - book tells its Korean story stylishly and with great skill.' William Trevor 'A warm and warming evocation of landscape and memory. Stout's lively sense of language and culture shows her to be a writer of great promise.' Daily Telegraph
