Born in 1970s North Korea, Lucia Jang grew up in a typical
household-her parents worked in the factories and the family
scraped by on rationed rice and a small garden. Nightly, she bowed
to her photo of Kim Il-Sung. But it was the beginning of a chaotic
period with a decade-long famine resulting in more than a million
deaths. In this harsh time, Jang married an abusive man who sold
their baby. She left him and went home to help her family by
illegally crossing the river to China to trade goods. She was
caught and imprisoned twice. After giving birth to a second child,
which the government ordered to be killed, she escaped with him,
fleeing under gunfire across the Chinese border. This stunning
demonstration of love and courage reflects the range of experiences
many North Korean women have endured.
