Review: The Last Story of Mina Lee

The Last Story of Mina Lee The Last Story of Mina Lee by Nancy Jooyoun Kim
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A very good first novel, well written and very well thought out. Margo is heading off from Seatle to visit her mother for Christmas. Her mom still lives in the same apartment of her childhood. When Margo arrived and went into the apartment, she found her mother on the floor dead. It appeared that she had fallen.

Margo was raised by her single mom who was originally from Korea. Margo was in the dark about her mom's past and for that matter she probably didn't realize that she had a past. She knew that her mom was raised in an orphanage and not a lot more than that.

But in the days following her discovery of her mom's body she decides to begin a search, first of all to try to discover who her father was. And then the story plot thickens.

An excellent read.
