 Asia, South Korea, Seoul
Genre: Fiction
Time Frame: 20th Century
Published: 2000
Description: In this brave and affecting novel, the mother of three adopted Korean children tries to help them discover their birth parents. But what factual information she's provided doesn't coincide with what the oldest child remembers - and knows is true. It is painfully clear that the children's history is lost.

From this powerful beginning, Joanna Catherine Scott takes us back to Korea and the history these will never know. And she tells the heartbreaking story of the young woman who was their mother, whom circumstance betrays.

The Lucky Gourd Shop is a tapestry of voices and histories, a gentle reminder that we are more than where we began; that the world is everywhere uneven in it sympathies; that the compassion we engender and the love we inspire are in part ours to create. It is a work of honesty, empathy and great power - a captivating tale of the human spirit.
