The Island of Sea Women
Thank you Barbara for hosting and all ladies attending , please see the perfectly timed “selfie” , courtesy of Chris B. - we had a splendid morning.
The Island of Sea Women by Lisa Sea got ratings between 7 and 9 - if you missed it you can learn about the strong South Korean women “fast track” watching these videos, we did just that to add spice to the meeting.
Everyone agreed that book was well written, carefully researched, nice structure, story line extending to cover a better part of a whole century, island flavor, haenyeo tradition, world history - delicious little details popping up here and there to make it a memorable read.

“What a lovely book. So well written! Such a sad story and in typical Asian style, presented with such calm.
Sorry I won’t be there for the discussion. I rate this book as a 9 out of 10 points. I would go as far as to give it 10 but 9 from me please “
Please take note of the rather altered end of the year schedule. December: no meeting.
