A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick
When Margot Lee's mother, Mina, doesn't return her calls, Margot visits her apartment in Koreatown, LA, to find that her mother has suspiciously died. Mina was a Korean War orphan, an undocumented immigrant, and a single mother. As Mina digs into her mother's past, she realizes how little she truly knew about her. Interwoven with Margot's present-day search is Mina's story of her first year in Los Angeles. While she works stocking shelves at a Korean grocery store, the last thing Mina expects is to fall in love. But that love story propels a series of events that have consequences for years to come - leading up to the truth of what happened the night of her death.
