A richly emotional portrait of a family that had me spellbound from page one. Cheryl Strayed, bestselling author of Wild

The night before Janie s sister, Hannah, is born, her grandmother tells her a story: Since the Japanese occupation of Korea, their family has lost a daughter in every generation, and Janie is told to keep Hannah safe. Years later, when Hannah inexplicably cuts all ties and disappears, Janie goes to find her.Thus begins a journey thatwill force her to confront her family s painful silence, the truth behind her parents sudden move to America twenty years earlier, and her own conflicted feelings toward Hannah.
Weaving Korean folklore within a modern narrative of immigration and identity, Forgotten Countryis a fierce exploration of the inevitability of loss, the conflict between obligation and freedom, and a family struggling to find its way out of silence and back to one another."
