Additional Information

Waxing Moon is an epic story set in feudal 19th century Korea, in the household of wealthy landowner Mr. O. Outside, there is political unrest as Western missionaries attempt to make inroads into the country. While the servants and wives within the O household compete for a greater degree of influence, Korea moves closer to the end of a dynasty and vast changes in the way of life for the privileged.

This story of family intrigue and political tension during the Joseon Dynasty is told with humor and warmth. The characters are driven by ambition yet tempered by love. Through the lives of the O family, the pains and passion of a country in turmoil are revealed.

"It is the interactions of the women against a vividly painted historical backdrop that engaged me from the first page." --Audrey Chin, When the Heart Bones Break "It is the interactions of the women against a vividly painted historical backdrop that engaged me from the first page." --Audrey Chin, When the Heart Bones Break

"H.S. Kim captures the power of this shift through the women of 19th-century Korea, as they endure life-altering events that expand in both scale and tragic momentum in concert with the lunar cycle. Set in the mid-1800s, the narrative overflows with relationships, often more competitive than amicable, both built and destroyed in the face of life and death. From Mrs. Wang, the wise and frank midwife, to the conniving Mistress Yee and to Nani, the young maid aspiring for a better life, Kim carefully crafts a community of characters seeking to master their respective universes as twilight falls on the Joseon Dynasty." --Jonathan Cha, KoreAM
