Please Look After Mom – Kyung-Sook Shin

This story tugs at your heartstrings and takes you along with it.  It is only when So-nyo Park goes missing that her family stops and thinks about what she meant to each of them.  You’ll get a great picture of Korean culture, of course, but the story itself is so powerful because the themes are universal.  This is one of those books that I wanted to keep on reading, and I gained new perspective upon subsequent re-readings.  When the sons and daughters reflect on their mother, they realize what she has done for them.  Similarly, when the father reflects on her, he realizes for the first time that she was more than the mother of his children – she was his wife!
