It is about an American father and his Eurasian son living in Korea. It is not without some soul-searching and a great deal of understanding on the part of his American wife that they get together as a family.

The father is an aspiring politician in Philadelphia. Put in shock and a moral dilemma by the sudden knowledge of his son, conceived while a soldier stationed in Korea, the father weighs his political future against his responsibilities to himself and his wife. The situation is further complicated by his childless marriage.This is very modern in its treatment of a politicians seemingly conflicting goals of public success and conscientious personal behavior.

The story confronts the disparity of two cultures: east and west and two generations. It is a very timely book for all of those reasons, but the reward of reading this book is Pearl Bucks ability as a story teller. Marital love, parental love, alienation, adoption, and ambition are all woven into this marvelous, poignant novel.
