Kim Sunée was abandoned as a child in a Korean marketplace. She was adopted, raised in New Orleans, and when she grew up, she ended up traveling the world. Justine Eyre tells her story with the piquant tone and energetic pace of a young woman who is discovering herself. The wonder expressed in Eyre's voice makes her journey from Asia to the United States and then to Europe believable and touching. For listeners who enjoy cooking, the memoir includes a variety of recipes, which help enliven aspects of the author's culture. At times, the tone of the author comes across as whiny. Nonetheless, Eyre creates a complete personality as she recounts a woman's extraordinary journey. M.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
