Listen to Sybil’s interview with a local NPR affiliate for Into This World: “Best New Read.”
Into This World was a finalist for ForeWord’s Book of the Year Award and received Honorable Mention for the Eric Hoffer book award.
Beautifully told, Sybil Baker weaves a lush, finely wrought tale of two daughters in search of love, two sisters in search of forgiveness in the middle of a foreign land.”
Every member of the family in this story is flawed; the beauty of the narrative lies in how they fit together anyway. With its complicated, authentic characters and a suspenseful premise, Into This World works as both a mystery and a family drama.”
Sybil Baker is a startlingly good writer. The big cities and small villages of Korea feel alive on every page. And if you think there’s nothing fresh to say about the fragility of family bonds, read INTO THIS WORLD. Only in the best-told stories, like this one, may we measure and forgive one another, and ourselves.”
