The Girl with Seven Names
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
An extraordinary insight into life under one of the world's most unscrupulous and mysterious dictatorships – and the story of the terrible struggle of a woman to avoid capture / repatriation and lead her family to freedom.
As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was one of millions caught by a secret and brutal communist regime. Her home on the border with China gave her an insight into the world beyond the borders of the Hermit Kingdom, and as the famine of the 1990s began, she began to wonder, to question, and to realize that she had been brainwashed all her life had been. In the face of oppression, poverty and famine, her country certainly could not be the best she had been told.
At seventeen, she decided to flee North Korea. She could not imagine that it would be twelve years before she was reunited with her family.
