South Korean immigrants Young and Pak Yoo run a pressurized oxygen chamber called the Miracle Submarine for “dives,” an experimental method of healing such ailments as infertility and autism. A tragedy occurs when a fire starts and the Miracle Submarine explodes killing two of the patients and injuring others, including Pak and their teenage daughter, Mary. Most of the story revolves around the trial of Elizabeth, a mother whose autistic son died in the explosion. Most evidence seems to point to Elizabeth but slowly we learn everyone that day was hiding secrets and had reason to blow up the submarine. This isn’t a typical legal thriller, although this part of the story was compelling and I love a good courtroom drama. It’s a story about family, immigration, and consequences for your actions. The multiple POV storyline was handled skillfully and Kim’s prose is beautiful. A powerful unforgettable novel that was both uplifting and heart-wrenching. – Bookseller and author Sarah Chen
