When I was seven years old, my mother and grandmother took me to the airport and watched as I boarded a plane for America. With time, I became convinced my life began the moment I stepped off the airplane on the other side of the world...

One day she was Kim Ji-yun, growing up in Seoul, Korea. The next day she was Catherine Jeanne Robinson, living in Salt Lake City, Utah. In her new home there was no face that mirrored her own, no one to tell her that she had her mother's eyes or her father's sense of humor. All she had was a single photograph to remind her of who she was - taken at the moment when her life irreversibly changed.

Twenty years later, with the blessings of her adoptive family, Katy Robinson returned to Seoul in search of her birth mother - and found herself an American outsider in her native land. What transpired in this world - at once familiar and strange, comforting, and sad - left Katy conflicted, shattered, exhilarated, and moved in ways she never imagined.

A Single Square Picture is a personal odyssey that ascends to the universal, a story that will resonate with anyone who has ever questioned their place in the world - and had the courage to find the answers.
