The third novel from the celebrated author of the two million-copy number one international bestseller THE HEN WHO DREAMED SHE COULD FLY. For fans of A MAN CALLED OVE and MY GRANDMOTHER SENDS HER REGARDS AND APOLOGIES by Fredrick Backman.
Celebrated bestselling author Sun-mi Hwang is back with a new novel, THE MIRACLE ON CHERRY HILL, a heartwarming story of renewal and friendship.
A terminally ill old man returns to his hometown, Cherry Village, to live out the remaining days of his life. Kang Dae-su grapples with his childhood demons and feelings of bitterness about the past but, eventually, his ice-cold heart starts to melt as he reluctantly begins to interact with those around him. In Hwang's graceful, gentle prose, Kang's story unspools as he encounters the inhabitants of Cherry Village and begins to face his childhood demons.
