Write Review

Rated 0

Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

A unique, beautifully written memoir about one woman s search for identity, reminiscent of the acclaimed books by Peter Mayle and Ruth Reichl

At a South Korean marketplace, three-year-old Kim Sunee s mother deposits her on a bench with a fistful of food and a promise to return. Three days later, a policeman takes the little girl and what is now a fistful of crumbs to a police station, where she learns that her mother isn t coming back. From here, her extraordinary life journey begins. Adopted by a young New Orleans couple, Kim spends her youth as one of only two Asian children in her entire school and church. At the age of 21, she becomes involved with a famous French businessman, and suddenly finds herself living in France, mistress over his houses and stepmother to his eight-year-old daughter. But despite this glamorous lifestyle, Kim feels like an outsider, and it is in food and cooking that she finds solace and a sense of place.
