MIRACLE ON CHERRY HILL


MIRACLE ON CHERRY HILL

SUN-MI HWANG    Book Number: 89000    Product format: Paperback

A much-loved classic in South Korea, here is a redemptive story of a damaged man regaining his trust in humanity, a bewitching classic to make grown men and women cry. Meet Sprout, a plucky hen whose modest dream to hatch a single egg will take her down a path that leads to her true place in the natural world. Heart, determination and empathy are the skills she needs, plus loyalty, sacrifice and courage. It is the story of a man named Kang Dae-su. His whole life is a miracle, rising from poverty to running a successful construction company. In his twilight years, Kang is diagnosed with a brain tumour and returns to his childhood home of Cherry Hill. He acquires a crumbling old house in which to retreat from the world, yet the residents of the town have other plans. They seem hell-bent on intruding on his private property, but who does the house in Cherry Hill really belong to? How is the bitter and despondent Kang's childhood tied to this magical place? An original story reminiscent of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, with graceful black and white illustrations. 192pp in paperback.
