The inspiration for Expats, a new series starring Nicole Kidman coming soon to Prime Video.

"Devastating and heartwarming, and exquisite in every way, this is a book you'll fall deeply in love with and never want to put down."
Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Piano Teacher, a searing novel of marriage, motherhood, and the search for connection far from home.

In the glittering city of Hong Kong, expats arrive daily for myriad reasons--to find or lose themselves in a foreign place, and to forget or remake themselves far from home. Amidst this hothouse atmosphere, a tragic incident causes three American women's lives to collide in ways that will rewrite every assumption of their privileged world: Mercy, a young Korean American and recent Columbia graduate, once again finds herself compromised and adrift, trying to start her life anew; Hilary, a wealthy housewife, is haunted by her struggle to have a child, hoping to save her uncertain marriage; meanwhile, Margaret, once the enviable mother of three, tries to negotiate an existence that has become utterly unrecognizable after a catastrophic event. Faced with unthinkable choices, these three women form a profound connection that defies the norms of the sequestered community--finding in each other a strength borne of need, forgiveness, and ultimately hope.

Atmospheric and utterly compelling, The Expatriates showcases Lee's exceptional talent as one of our keenest observers of women's inner lives.
