Much is written about World War II, but little is written about what happened in the tiny country of Korea. The author, Sook Nyul Choi, lived in Korea during these turbulent times, and has created a main character, Sookan Bok, and a storyline that reflects much of what she experienced. In the first book, Year of Impossible Goodbyes, you will read about what life was like under the control of the Japanese military. Ten-year-old Sookan lives with her mother and brother, and she dreams of the day that they are free and she can be reunited with her father and three bothers. The Japanese are finally driven out by the Americans, but their hopes of freedom are soon dashed as the superpowers divide her country and the Communist Russians take control of North Korea where she lives. Echoes of the White Giraffe continues the saga, as Sookan's family is forced to flee once again, as war breaks out in the city of Seoul that they had finally escaped to just a few years earlier. They once again find themselves separated from her father and brothers, and are living in a refugee camp in Pusan. She is able to continue her schooling, and her one driving ambition is to study in America. Gathering of Pearls completes the story as you journey with Sookan to America as she continues her studies and has many amazing experiences. Well-written and eye opening! - elise
