THE CALLIGRAPHER’S DAUGHTER by Eugenia Kim

In early-twentieth-century Korea, Najin Han, the privileged daughter of a calligrapher, longs to choose her own destiny as she tries to maintain the traditional values of her father and as the Japanese slowly gain brutal control of her country. This story is based on the memoirs of the author’s mother.

This story was interesting to learn the culture of Korea in the early 1900's. It was a little slow, but an amazing story and life.
