Summary
The author pens a dazzling work of historical fiction, based on true events, about two women: Alice, a Korean war survivor and translator for the American forces in Seoul, and Marilyn Monroe, who is visiting Korea on a four-day USO tour. Moving and mesmerizing, this is a beautiful portrayal of unexpected kinship and the surprising connections that can change, or even save, a life
