Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Forgotten Country - Catherine Chung A story of an immigrant family from South Korea to Michigan and back again. Lots of family anguish, but an excellent look of being outsiders in another land. Janie, who is the narrator of the novel, is a very sympathetic character, caught up in a storm of rivalry, jealousy and family secret that stretches back decades. Four stars overall, and recommended.
