Barley Fields

A love story written in verse

A romantic and gentle love story told using poetry.

Told in poetic verse, this full length novel unfolds against a backdrop of rolling farmlands and looming mountains in the rural countryside of old Korea.

She is small yet
vibrant, childhood gone and her
chest swelling beneath well-mended jeogori, a jacket 
threadbare of palest blue,
that she cannot keep clean.
His dark head bows
as dreams of deep night
from his head, and heart
leaving spaces that nothing

A quiet tale of love, family and finding your true home in a vast frightening world.
