    Om Calligrapher's Daughter

    Finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace PrizeAWashington PostBest Book of the YearWinner of the 2009 Borders Original Voices Award In early-twentieth-century Korea, Najin Han, the privileged daughter of a calligrapher, longs to choose her own destiny. But her country is in tumult under Japans harsh occupation, and her familys traditions, entitlements, and wealth crumble. Narrowly escaping an arranged marriage, Najin becomes a companion to a young princess, until Koreas lastking is assassinated, and the centuries-old dynastic culture comes to its end. Najin pursues a coveted education and is surprised to find love. After one day of marriage, a denied passport separates her from her new husband, who journeys alone to America. As a decade passes and the world descends into war, Najin loses touch with her husband. Will the love they share be enough to sustain her through the deprivation her country continues to endure? The Calligraphers Daughteris a vivid, heartfelt portrait of faith, love and life for one family during a pivotal time in history (Bookpage).
