The SurrenderedBook - 2010
"June Han has forged a life thousands of miles from her birthplace: she has built a business in New York, outlived a husband, borne a child. But her past holds more secrets than she has ever been able to tell, and thirty years after her escape from war-ravaged Korea, the time has come for her to confront them. Hector Brennan, fighter, drinker, and 'failure grand and total,' is the man who long ago, in the aftermath of the war, saved June's life. And between June and Hector lies the story of the beautiful missionary wife Sylvie Tanner, whose elusive love they both once sought. On a journey that takes them from the scorched hillsides and abandoned rice paddies of a shattered Korea to a blood-soaked century-old Italian battlefield, June and Hector go in search of their past, bound together by a legacy of shocking acts of violence and love"--Cover, p. 2.
