Her quest and her fetus continue to grow.
Two hours into surgery, Susan’s mother loses oxygen to her brain and the plastic surgeon deliberately does not call 9-1-1 for fourteen minutes. Five days later, while in a coma, she flatlines. The surgeon is charged with medical negligence and her family falls apart; no one talks about what happened. Nineteen years later on her wedding day, Susan’s mother’s seat sits empty and Susan realizes she can no longer ignore what she’s always wanted: to know who her mother was. Sifting through thousands of deposition pages, reaching out to the killer’s family, and becoming pregnant herself, Susan uncovers the painful truth of her mother, herself, and the impossible ideal of Vietnamese feminine beauty.
