From the back cover:

Daughter of the Wind God is a coming-of-age story of survival and ultimate triumph in the face of adversity. Myung-Hee Hur was born on Jeju Island, in the southern-most part of South Korea, at the end of the Korean War. Her family was plunged into poverty when a typhoon destroyed her father’s business. When she was six, her mother put her in the care of her 19-year-old sister, and sent them off on their own. She did not see her mother again until she was 11 or 12. 

Her story is also a spiritual odyssey. Although she was raised as a devout Christian, she found that her church’s narrow views of Christianity did not address her passion to serve the poor. She joined an American non-profit service organization and worked in community development projects in rural Korea and Japan, in a jungle village in Venezuela, in Canada, the US, and Hong Kong. After getting married, she started her own business in Hong Kong. As she writes, “I was a horse girl without much sense of direction, a less than ordinary girl with a lot of rough edges. It took the world to tame me, and the world succeeded, somewhat. This is the story of an island girl who learned to ride the wind.”
