A fearlessly honest and fascinating collection of essays from some of the bravest journalists in the world: the Arab women writers who defy cultural expectations and put their lives on the line to report the stories from a rapidly changing Middle East. Full of hope, loss, despair, and unexpected bursts of humor, this is a timely reminder of the necessity of real journalism and the power stories have to change the world.
At the heart of this historical fiction is the lifelong friendship of two girls growing up in a matriarchal sea-diving community on the South Korean Island of Jeju.
While Korean (and world) history envelops the island we get a glimpse of a remarkable community of women that really exists and is not long for this world. Choices we make and how and IF we forgive are explored.
