About the Author

Mary Lynn Bracht is an American author of Korean descent who now lives in London. She has an MA in Creative Writing from Birkbeck, University of London. She grew up in a large ex-pat community of women who came of age in post-war South Korea. In 2002 Bracht visited her mother's childhood village, and it was during this trip she first learned of the 'Comfort Women' captured and set up in brothels for the Japanese military. White Chrysanthemum is her first novel.

Reviews

"I read it in one sitting" -- Kate Kellaway * Observer *
"I would also recommend Mary-Lynn Bracht's novel White Chrysanthemum, a story of family separation in Korea during the 20th century. I learned a lot about Korean culture in this book, but it also has a sweeping story that captivates the reader" -- John Boyne * Irish Times Summer Reads *
"I read Hana and Emi's story with my heart in my mouth... A bold, devastating, important novel shot through with hope and beauty" -- Rachel Joyce
"Introduces a heart-rending seam of history... Bracht has fashioned her own memorial to the comfort women. White Chrysanthemum is a timely and furiously felt book" -- Rowan Hisayo Buchanan * Guardian *
"A hugely affecting, captivating read -- I cried for most of the second half" -- Sarah Shaffi * Stylist *
