A glimpse into North Korea

  • Book: The Island of Sea Women
  • Location: Jeju
  • Author: Lisa See

Review Author: Jpedie



I love Lisa See’s writing. This novel took me to an island in North Korea where the culture is matriarchal with the women holding most of the decision-making and supporting the family by diving for seafood. Generational aspect allowed the reader to experience the changes over time. Very well researched.
