Taking place over decades of hardship and unforeseen struggles, The Island of Sea Women follows two women’s unlikely friendship as they navigate personal adversity, political unrest, danger and uncertainty on the Korean island of Jeju, before and after World War II. The book, chosen as one of the most anticipated books of 2019 by both Oprah’s Book Club and Lit Hub, is scheduled for release in March.
