Overview

All Woman and Springtime by Brandon W. Jones

Before she met Il-sun in an orphanage, Gi was a hollow husk of a girl, broken from growing up in one of North Korea’s forced-labor camps. A mathematical genius, she learned to cope with pain by retreating into a realm of numbers and calculations, an escape from both the past and the present. Gi becomes enamored of the brash and radiant Il-sun, a friend she describes as “all woman and springtime.” But Il-sun’s pursuit of a better life imperils both girls when her suitor spirits them across the Demilitarized Zone and sells them as sex workers, first in South Korea and then in the United States.
All Woman and Springtime takes us behind the iron curtain of the most mysterious country on earth as it weaves a heartbreaking, breath-taking story.

A FIRST novel for Brandon Jones? It's triumphant! I found it almost impossible to put down yet I hated to finish it because I didn't WANT it to end. From the very beginning, I felt so immersed in the characters that I was WITH them. As a child who was beaten, raped, and loaned out to my sick father's 'business associates', I truly identified with and felt Gyong, Ill-Sun, Cho, and the other girls. A lot of tears fell on the pages, but I somehow felt purged of sadness when I read the last pages. THANK YOU, Brandon Jones, for a stunningly, well-written, IMPORTANT book. Please, write more!

Honestly this book is unbelivable! 371 PAGES . The ending was kind of rushed i thought... unless there will be a sequel.
