Janice Y. K. Lee

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

I raced through this enthralling story of three very different American women living in the same small expat community in Hong Kong. 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. Let me read.' - Liane Moriarty

I raced through this enthralling story' - Liane Moriarty

'Brilliantly plotted and written, utterly absorbing' - Daily Mail

'An emotionally gripping page-turner' - Elle

Mercy, a young Korean American and recent Columbia graduate, is adrift, undone by a terrible incident in her recent past. Hilary, a wealthy housewife, is haunted by her struggle to have a child, something she believes could save her foundering marriage. 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.
