Mourning Calm- paperback MOCK UP2Hannah can’t ignore her mother’s “last” request. And a trip—even a sad one—might be a good break from her failing relationship and almost-bankrupt business. With exhausted reluctance, Hannah travels to return her aunt’s ashes to their family burial mountain in South Korea.  On the first day of her trip, Hannah meets JiYuen, the mirror image of her prettier self.

JiYuen, the beautiful biracial Korean model, has risen above her upbringing in an orphanage and is now a mainstay on magazine covers and runways. Already feeling the competition from younger models, JiYuen is suspicious about Hannah’s reason for being in Seoul.

When the women are given an old yellowed photograph, Hannah and JiYuen discover a shared family history which has been hidden, untold, and kept secret.
