Superb reporting and storytelling about a modern-day underground railroad make Melanie Kirkpatrick’s Escape from North Korea WORLD’s Book of the Year.
— Marvin Olasky, WORLD Magazine
‘No great American festival is as surrounded by so much myth and conjecture as Thanksgiving Day, but Melanie Kirkpatrick has finally laid them all to rest. In this well-researched, well-written and beautifully produced book she considers the holiday from every angle historical, emotional, patriotic, even gastronomic. The result is a surprise on every page. She shows brilliantly how from cooking pot to melting pot, America is a product of Thanksgiving as much as Thanksgiving is a product of America.’
