The Calligrapher's Daughter,
This review is from: The Calligrapher's Daughter (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the authors first novel and what a first novel!
Set in Korea and is essentially a historical fiction novel, I am a massive fan of historical fiction but, this was a new one for me as I usually stick to Tudor, Restoration etc this was very impressive.
The main character, Najin is someone you want things to go so right for, so likeable and I really warmed to her and wanted everything right for her! The main thing I got from this book was the history of a country I know little about, ok I'm not clued up on Korea's history so not sure on the accuracy but, for me that did not matter it gave me an insight into a culture and way of like I have not encountered.
As the authors first novel I will definitely be looking for more, a very impressive read.
