Lies, rumours and guilt snowball, causing the parents, Joanna and Alistair, to slowly turn against each other.
Finally Joanna starts thinking the unthinkable: could the truth be even more terrible than she suspected? And what will it take to make things right? In its shadow she meets Mathieu Dubosq and falls in love for the first time, daring to hope that a happy future awaits. When Cara stumbles across a stash of old postcards in the attic, their contents make her question everything she thought she knew.
The story she pieces together is confusing and unsettling, and appears to have been patched over with lies. But who can tell her the truth? From the bestselling author of Daughters of the Dragon comes the story of one of the most extraordinary queens in history. As tensions rise on the Korean peninsula, US diplomat Nate Simon is sent to Seoul to gauge the political situation and advise the president. He also needs to find out why someone sent the president an ancient, intricately carved comb with an ivory inlay of a two-headed dragon.
Seoul, Highly intelligent but shy, Ja-young faces a choice: she can be a stone queen - silent and submissive - or she can be a dragon queen and oppose enemies and empires that try to rule Korea during the age of imperialism. Her choice leads her to forge a legend that will endure far beyond her lifetime. Now the choice is up to him: be submissive and accepting…or change the world. The previous book Daughters of the Dragon is much better.
Several of the modern time chapters are cheesy and unlikely to happen. Narration made it bearable.
Saint George and the Dragon
I read the first book in the series in paper form, and decided to try the second in audiobook format. I was incredibly disappointed by the narration. The narrator and or the producers should have done their homework and realized that the character of Anna Carlson was raised in America in an American family, with English as her first language. Instead, the voice of Anna was given a fake pan Asian accent. I am still interested in reading the book, but I will go back to paper because the narration is so distracting.
A pleasure to listen to. This is a must read for anyone interested in Asian, especially Korean, history. It is a heart wrenching story and shows the unexpected twists and turns if life. It also shows he strength of character and conviction of one woman, actually two women, as a servant was equally as compell. I know almost nothing about Korea or its history.
I found this book to be engrossing and informative.

I loved this book!! Wonderful narration brings story to life. In every generation there are people destined to do or not do. The most absolutely smashing read and you don't want to stop reading at all or care to stop reading. This novel provides an interesting insight into the life of the last Korean Queen. The frame narration doesn't really need to be there, but is perhaps a good way to draw the reader into an otherwise very unfamiliar story.
