The tumultuous history of Korea unfolds in Mira Stout's debut novel One Thousand Chestnut Trees, a compelling story of a young woman's search for her Korean heritage--and her own sense of identity. In her journeys, she discovers a legacy left behind by the noble clan from which she is descended--a temple erected by her great-grandfather in defiance of centuries of invasions against Korea, and the one thousand chestnut trees that shield it from view.
