GRACE NOTES: A STORY OF MUSIC, TRIALS & UNEXPECTED BLESSINGS

by Sange-Eun Lee Bukaty

A first-generation Korean-American motherís memoir of her journey from growing up in Korea and earning national fame as a cellist, to adjusting to a new life in a foreign land and raising second-generation children as Americans.
The authorís insightful perspectives take readers into experiencing a rich first-person account of Korean culture, holidays, the art of kimchee-making, the structure of Korean families and the funeral process.
Countless Korean-Americans have made America their home, but their stories are largely left untold, not only to their children, but also to their fellow Americans. Grace Notes is a tribute to all who wish to learn more about Korean culture from a first-person perspective.
Grace Notes is intelligent, heartbreaking and magnificently alive. It is a timeless story that spans two cultures, two continents, and two languages as it speaks of the universal love connecting sister to sister, mother to daughter, and wife to husband.
