-- Booklist

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Songsu Kim is orphaned when his father runs away from home and her mother takes poison. Raised by his uncle, he inherits the family pharmacy and later invests in a small fishing fleet. He marries Punshi of his uncle's choosing and has five daughters, but curse is the undercurrent of their lives - the eldest daughter by an allegation of baby murder; the second daughter by a failed love affair; the third by insanity resulting from her shameless pursuit of personal happiness; and the fourth by a grave misfortune at sea. Intriguing and engaging, The Curse of Kim's Daughters takes a fascinating look at the vast evolution of the Korean society in the first half of the 20th century.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Her other major works include A Floating Island (1959), The Curse of Kim's Daughters (1962), and The Marketplace and the Battlefield (1964). She is currently at work on a new novel called Butterfly.
