3. This Burns My Heart, by Samuel Park

In This Burns My Heart novelist Samuel Park explores the question of what happens when we let a moment – a love-at-first-sight moment – slip by us. Does it hang over us for the rest of our lives? Park's heroine in post-war Korea lets her moment slip away, marrying the man her parents choose for her instead of the man she loves. She then faces a bittersweet existence, split between love and duty.
