    I just read your heart-wrenching, fantastic, novel and the next day I thought your storytelling of the sisters and the one, a ‘comfort woman’, would make a fabulous movie. That same day I read about the release of the film of Crazy Rich Asians. Wow! I hope you will pursue White Chrysthansemum becoming a movie with a sensitive director and cast. I also look forward to your future writings. Thank You, Ms. Bracht for the tenderness, rage, and passion of your characters in the book.

    1. Thank you Jan! It would be wonderful to see Hana and Emi come to life on film one day. Anything is possible! I’m so pleased you enjoyed their story. 🙏❤️

    I am looking for a good book on the history of Korea that does not focus on the Korean War alone. Would you have any suggestions? I always want to back what I read in fictionalized form with the straight factual history if at all possible.

    1. Hi Bonnie, I love to do that too! I included a reading list in the back of the book with some great suggestions. I think numbers 1 & 6 might be good reads for you:
      1. A History of East Asia: From the Origins of Civilization to the Twenty-First Century by Charles Holcombe
      6. Everlasting Flower: A History of Korea by Keith Pratt
      Check them out and perhaps they can lead you to more sources to read — depending on what you’re searching for. Good luck! 😊

    Thank you for writing White Chrysanthemum. It has opened my eyes while making me weep.

    Hi Mary,
    I am not sure how your book flew past my radar but I’m so glad to have found it and I’ll be reading it soon. I wish I would have met you prior to the publication of an anthology of Mixec Korean Stories that was just launched because it woukd have been an honor to have you contribute. Congratulations on getting published to such acclaim! So exciting. I’m working, with the help of an agent, on a fictionalized version of my mother’s life story revolving around her life in a camp town and how she met my father. Also there is a group for Korean American Writers that I can send you an invite for if you’re interested. Many names you’d recognize in the group. Just drop me a line via my email. Again huge congrats on your debut! And FYI my website is being updated so the link below won’t get you to anything yet.
