wallflowerings book club: May's book

Big thanks to those who signed up to my book club newsletter and who joined my GoodReads group! As members, some of you have probably received the announcement but, to honor Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the book I've chosen for May is...


Pachinko by Min Jin Lee

In the early 1900s, teenaged Sunja, the adored daughter of a crippled fisherman, falls for a wealthy stranger at the seashore near her home in Korea. He promises her the world, but when she discovers she is pregnant--and that her lover is married--she refuses to be bought. Instead, she accepts an offer of marriage from a gentle, sickly minister passing through on his way to Japan. But her decision to abandon her home, and to reject her son's powerful father, sets off a dramatic saga that will echo down through the generations. 

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, and so I chose this book in my book club because of what it represents in majority of Asian cultures, including my own: family and love. I've already read a few pages and I can't wait to read more, and start discussions (in which you could participate here!).
