One day in September, 1952, Suhee and Kuhee boarded an American Army freight ship at Pusan Harbor. The ship was coming to the United States. There were seven more students; two male and five females. When they first approached the ship, they were overwhelmed with sadness, leaving their war-torn country and their families.
When they gathered in the sitting room of the ship they could talk. They could no longer hear the fighting and bombing. They were not in Korea, the war-ridden land, nor yet in the Heaven-like (to them) America.
This is the second volume of Kathleen Yaekyung Cheh's Korean memoir series. It follows her initial volume, My Korean Childhood, Growing Up In North Korea Before The Second World War. Kathleen Yaekyung Cheh's harrowing narrative exposes the hidden dystopia, focusing on an extraordinary young woman who came of age just as the country of her birth was split apart by war. Two Sisters offers an unequaled inside account of Korean's darkest hour. It is a tale of endurance and courage, survival and hope.
