Publisher's Summary

Born in 1970s North Korea, Lucia Jang grew up in a typical household - her parents worked in the factories, and the family scraped by on rations. Nightly she bowed to her photo of Kim Il-Sung. It was the beginning of a chaotic period with a decade-long famine.
Jang married an abusive man who sold their baby. She left him and went home to help her family by illegally crossing the river to China to trade goods. She was caught and imprisoned twice. After giving birth to a second child, which the government ordered to be killed, she escaped with him, fleeing under gunfire across the Chinese border. This demonstration of love and courage reflects the range of experiences many North Korean women have endured.

Fantastic story. Well read.

I have now read 4 books about North Korean Refugees. While this is not my favorite, it is definitely near the top (Yeonmi Park's book is by far the best imo).

The reading is clear and very easily understood. The story itself will keep you so interested you won't want to stop listening. Give this book a chance and you will not regret it.

Well narrated

Janet Song did a wonderful job narrating this story. The woman's unfortunate history in North Korea was incredibly very interesting and sad to listen to.
