By Yuliana Kim-Grant
The Parks rejected Terence as a result of his colour; the Pattersons accredited Jane with out qualification, and but neither kin has the virtue in dealing with the longer term. Beverly Patterson wears her grief over her son’s demise like armor, while her daughter fades to a shadow. Mrs Park, so guaranteed to her husband that even her first identify turns out gratuitous, eventually gathers the braveness that enables all of them to break the cycle that's inexorably slicing them off from one another – Park from Park, Patterson from Patterson. A SHRED OF wish is balanced at the problematic, exquisitely delineated interaction of those moms, separated through their traditions yet united by way of their loss.
Each second of Yuliana Kim-Grant’s novel is strikingly precise and recognizably generic as her characters stray into – and out of – emotional territory that they by no means sought after nor deliberate. Her compassionate yet unflinting portrait turns the opaque rock of the lives of the Parks and the Pattersons into the translucent diamond shaped via A SHRED OF HOPE.
