Book Description

Gi and Il-sun live behind North Korea's iron curtain, under the watchful eye of Kim Jong-il. As orphans, growing up on a diet of thin soup and propaganda, life is a struggle against hunger and fear. But tender Gi and headstrong Il-sun find consolation in each other, and their unlikely friendship grows as deep as the bond between sisters. Everything will change when a man comes into their lives. As Gi and Il-sun are taken from their jobs in a clothing factory, and spirited across the border to the South, they begin a journey that will test the strength of their friendship, and their entire understanding of the world. Perfect for fans of Khaled Hosseini and Chris Cleave, ALL WOMAN AND SPRINGTIME is an unforgettable portrait of the most mysterious country on earth, and of a young woman who loses everything but refuses to be destroyed.
