This novel tells of the fate of two young women, Il-Sun and Gi, who live in a North Korean orphanage and end up in sexual slavery in South Korea and later the US. While the writing is not well-honed (a first novel), the book provides deep insight about life in a totalitarian regime, which ring quite true.

The story of sex trafficking is told movingly through the eyes of Gi - we experience the way she survives abuse through splitting her mind from her body and yet develops strength amid her suffering. An important contribution.
