Summary
An incredible memoir of North Korea by a woman who defied the government to keep her family alive.-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, who 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
Summary
The memoir of a determined young North Korean woman who endured famine, an unlawful marriage and harsh imprisonment, and who finally managed to escape to Canada.
