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
‘In this well-researched, well-written and beautifully produced book Melanie Kirkpatrick considers the holiday from every angle — historical, emotional, patriotic, even gastronomic. The result is a surprise on every page.’
‘In this short, beautiful, history of our oldest national custom, Melanie Kirkpatrick reminds us that we Americans have, and will always have, in common. An edifying, elevating book in the year of our worst division, Thanksgiving uplifts by informing and takes us to our better, internal American.’
