Summary from Goodreads:

Eunsun Kim was born in North Korea, one of the most secretive and oppressive countries in the modern world. As a child Eunsun loved her country…despite her school field trips to public executions, daily self-criticism sessions, and the increasing gnaw of hunger as the country-wide famine escalated.

By the time she was eleven years old, Eunsun’s father and grandparents had died of starvation, and Eunsun too was in danger of starving. Finally, her mother decided to escape North Korea with Eunsun and her sister, not knowing that they were embarking on a journey that would take them nine long years to complete. Before finally reaching South Korea and freedom, Eunsun and her family would live homeless, fall into the hands of Chinese human traffickers, survive a North Korean labor camp, and cross the deserts of Mongolia on foot.

Now, in A Thousand Miles to Freedom, Eunsun is sharing her remarkable story to give voice to the tens of millions of North Koreans still suffering in silence. Told with grace and courage, her memoir is a riveting exposé of North Korea’s totalitarian regime and, ultimately, a testament to the strength and resilience of the human spirit.

  1. Looks like a riveting read, T! I know it’s not “high-brow art,” but I thought “The Interview” was a good film because of the message beneath the frequent bad language and sexual innuendo. I can’t enter the giveaway but will check out buying a copy!

    • I think fans of non-fiction will LOVE this book. I actually never watched The Interview (besides seeing a clip or 2 advertising it!) If you get a copy- LMK if it lives up to what you think it will be like 🙂
