Summary: A youthful US army lieutenant and a female Chinese surgeon from opposing sides of the Korean War conflict are forced to educe the hardship and the suffering around them as their fates intertwine at the height of the war.  Through a chronicle of merciless battles and the brutality and hypocrisy of human nature, individual's resilience fortifies the pursuit of love and liberty.

This was an amazing story.   The author's writing and descriptions made me feel like I was actually there experiencing the same things as her characters - intense, scary, sad - the things seen, death with, felt, the treatment Jasmine received from her colleagues, the atrocities of war - the pain, fear and death.  

If you like to read historical books set in the middle of war, this is definitely the book for you.  The author did an amazing job and I can't wait to read more from her.

I am too. It was really good. Very powerful and emotional - so, if you haven't read it yet, be prepared to have moments of tears.
