it was amazing
bookshelves: read-women-2021

Beautiful and heartwarming, yet doesn't shy away from the tragedy and horrors of its context, without being overly graphic or exploitative. And it offers a deeper dive into haenyeo (sea women) and Jeju Island, which I'd first learned of last year while reading The Magical Language of Others by E.J. Koh.
