Summary:

A REESE’S BOOK CLUB PICK

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Riveting and unconventional, The Last Story of Mina Lee traces the far-reaching consequences of secrets in the lives of a Korean immigrant mother and her daughter

Margot Lee's mother is ignoring her calls. Margot can’t understand why, until she makes a surprise trip home to Koreatown, LA, and finds that her mother has suspiciously died. Determined to discover the truth, Margot unravels her single mother’s past as a Korean War orphan and an undocumented immigrant, only to realize how little she truly knew about her mother, Mina.

Thirty years earlier, Mina Lee steps off a plane to take a chance on a new life in America. Stacking shelves at a Korean grocery store, the last thing she expects is to fall in love. But that moment leads to repercussions for Mina that echo through the decades, leading up to the truth of what happened the night of her death.

Told through the intimate lens of a mother and daughter who have struggled all their lives to understand each other, The Last Story of Mina Lee is a powerful and exquisitely woven debut novel that explores identity, family, secrets, and what it truly means to belong.

“Painful, joyous... A story that cries out to be told.” —Los Angeles Times

“Kim is a brilliant new voice in American fiction.” —Alexander Chee, author of How to Write an Autobiographical Novel

“Suspenseful and deeply felt.” —Chloe Benjamin, author of The Immortalists

Genres:

  • Anonymous

    I can barely listen to this. Maybe the story is good but the narrator sounds like a second grader and the pace is so slow and tedious I can’t take it anymore.

  • Paulina M.

    I wanted to like this book because it is a pick by the Reece Witherspoon book club, but I just found it too vanilla.... the narrator too was quite hard to get into.... perhaps the next pick will be better?
