Trail of Crumbs: Hunger, Love, and the Search for Home
A fine book. Three days later a policeman took the little girl, clutching what was now only a fistful of crumbs, to a police station and told her that she'd been abandoned by her mother. Fast-forward almost 20 years and Kim's life is unrecognizable. Adopted by a young New Orleans couple, she spends her youth as one of only two Asian children in her entire community.
I loved this book May 19, - Published on Amazon. Easy read, but a bit on the feminine side. December 28, - Published on Amazon. October 25, - Published on Amazon. I understand other reader's comments about the book feeling unfinished. But really, wouldn't it be sad if a person's memoirs could considered complete at Kim's age? The unfinished ending left me with two feelings: understanding the lack of closure she felt towards being abandoned, and hope that she would someday find peace that she sought through her cooking and culinary explorations.
I found this book refreshing. Rather than having a psychologist explain the feelings adopted children may experience, Kim demonstrates how those feelings affect her decisions through the story of her life - or the story of her life thus far. There was no unnecessary drama, no child abuse, etc, just a woman in search of an answer she may never find. Why had her mother abandoned her?

Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunee
Abandoned at age three in a Korean marketplace, Sunee is adopted by an American couple who raise her in New Orleans. In the s she settles, after a fashion, in France with Olivier Baussan, a multimillionaire of epicurean tastes and—at least in her depiction—controlling disposition.
She struggles to create a home for herself in the kitchen, cooking gargantuan meals for their large circle of friends, until her restive nature and Baussan's impatience with her literary ambitions compel her to move on.
The gutsy Cajun and ethereal French recipes that serve as chapter codas are matched by engaging storytelling. Alas, for all Sunee's preoccupation with the geography of home, her insights on the topic are disappointingly slight, and the facile wrapup offered in the form of resolution seems a shortcut in a book that traverses so much rocky terrain.
