The Surrendered

by Chang-rae Lee
£9.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (Abacus) (2011)

The Surrendered by Chang-rae Lee June Han has forged a life thousands of miles from her birthplace: she has built a business in New York, survived a husband, borne a child. But her past holds more secrets than she has ever been able to tell, and thirty years after her escape from war-ravaged Korea, the time has come for her to confront them.
 
Hector Brennan, fighter, drinker and ‘failure grand and total’, is the man who long ago saved June’s life. And between them lies the story of the beautiful, damaged Sylvie Tanner, whose elusive love they both once sought.
 
On a journey that takes them from the scorched hillsides and abandoned rice paddies of a shattered Korea to a blood-soaked century-old Italian battlefield, together June and Hector go in search of their past, bound together by a legacy of shocking acts of violence and love.
 
Compelling, suspenseful and unforgettable, The Surrendered is a stunning epic of war, redemption and human longing. It is a masterpiece.

"Masterful...The Surrendered bursts with drama and human anguish...Powerful, deeply felt, compulsively readable and imbued with moral gravity, the novel does not peter out into easy redemption. It’s a harrowing tale: bleak, haunting and often heart-breaking - and not to be missed"
