“Brave, emotional, and gorgeously written....I’m already
awaiting volume two.”
—Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun
A unique, beautifully written memoir about
one woman’s search for identity, reminiscent
of the acclaimed books by Peter Mayle and
At a South Korean marketplace, three-year-old Kim Sunée’s mother deposits her on a bench with a fistful of food and a promise to return. Three days later, a policeman takes the little girl and what is now a fistful of crumbs to a police station, where she learns that her mother isn’t coming back. From here, her extraordinary life journey begins.
Adopted by a young New Orleans couple, Kim spends her youth as one of only two Asian children in her entire school and church. At the age of 21, she becomes involved with a famous French businessman, and suddenly finds herself living in France, mistress over his houses and stepmother to his eight-year-old daughter. But despite this glamorous lifestyle, Kim feels like an outsider, and it is in food and cooking that she finds solace and a sense of place. From Korea to New Orleans; from Paris to Provence, Trail of Crumbs is a passionate tale and fascinating memoir about love, food,travel -- and the search for self.
