    Kate Kellaway, Observer
  • "I would also recommend Mary-Lynn Bracht’s novel White Chrysanthemum, a story of family separation in Korea during the 20th century. I learned a lot about Korean culture in this book, but it also has a sweeping story that captivates the reader"

  • "I read Hana and Emi's story with my heart in my mouth... A bold, devastating, important novel shot through with hope and beauty"

    Rachel Joyce
  • "Introduces a heart-rending seam of history… Bracht has fashioned her own memorial to the comfort women. White Chrysanthemum is a timely and furiously felt book"

    Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, Guardian
