by Mary Lynn Bracht
Read by Julia Franklin
Genre: General Fiction
Media: Audiobook

Hana and her little sister Emi are part of an island community of haeneyo, women who make their living from diving deep into the sea off the southernmost tip of Korea. One day Hana sees a Japanese soldier heading for where Emi is guarding the day's catch on the beach. Terrified for her sister, Hana swims as hard as she can for the shore. So begins the story of two sisters violently separated by war. Switching between Hana in 1943 and Emi as an old woman today, White Chrysanthemum takes us into a dark corner of history. But pulling us back into the light are two women whose love for one another is strong enough to triumph over the evils of war.
