One devastating moment has irreversible consequences for all three. I kept saying 'no, no, no' as I read the description of that moment. My husband said, 'What?' - and I said, 'Be quiet.

Mercy, a young Korean American and recent Columbia graduate, is adrift, undone by a terrible incident in her recent past.

Meanwhile, Margaret, once a happily married mother of three, questions her identity in the wake of a shattering loss.
As each woman struggles with her own demons, their lives collide in ways that have irreversible consequences for them all. THE EXPATRIATES is an atmospheric, moving, and utterly compelling story of motherhood and family set against the unforgettable backdrop of Hong Kong.
Brilliantly plotted and written, utterly absorbing, often heartbreaking, THE EXPATRIATES looks set to be one of the books of the year. - Daily Mail
