All Woman and Springtime | [Brandon W. Jones]

All Woman and Springtime

Two orphan girls are taken from their jobs in a pants factory in North Korea, spirited across the Demilitarized Zone to be sex workers in the South, and eventually shipped to the United States. What propels the story is Gi, the heroine: a tender-hearted genius who loses everything yet refuses to be destroyed. All Woman and Springtime reveals with chilling accuracy the facts of life behind North Korea's iron curtain, the horrific underworld of the sex trade, and the resilience of a spirit in the midst of unspeakable oppression.

Publisher's Summary

Two orphan girls are taken from their jobs in a pants factory in North Korea, spirited across the Demilitarized Zone to be sex workers in the South, and eventually shipped to the United States. What propels the story is Gi, the heroine: a tender-hearted genius who loses everything yet refuses to be destroyed.

Reminiscent of Memoirs of a Geisha, All Woman and Springtime reveals with chilling accuracy the facts of life behind North Korea's iron curtain, the horrific underworld of the sex trade, and the resilience of a spirit in the midst of unspeakable oppression.

    "This book is great!!"
    What did you love best about All Woman and Springtime?

    The characters were so well developed and the imagery he created of North Korea was amazing. Believable storyline and kept my interest up until the very end.
