A new novel from Lisa See, the New York Times bestselling author of The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, about female friendship and family secrets on a small Korean island. Mi-ja and Young-sook, two girls living on the Korean island of Jeju, are best friends that come from very different backgrounds. When they are old enough, they begin working in the sea with their village's all-female diving collective, led by Young-sook's mother. As the girls take up their positions as baby divers, they know they are beginning a life of excitement and responsibility but also danger. Despite their love for each other, Mi-ja and Young-sook's differences are impossible to ignore. The Island of Sea Women is an epoch set over many decades, beginning during a period of Japanese colonialism in the 1930s and 1940s, followed by World War II, the Korean War and its aftermath, through the era of cell phones and wet suits for the women divers. Throughout this time, the residents of Jeju find themselves caught between warring empires. Mi-ja is the daughter of a Japanese collaborator, and she will forever be marked by this association. Young-sook was born into a long line of haenyeo and will inherit her mother's position leading the divers in their village. Little do the two friends know that after surviving hundreds of dives and developing the closest of bonds, forces outside their control will push their friendship to the breaking point. This beautiful, thoughtful novel illuminates a world turned upside down, one where the women are in charge, engaging in dangerous physical work, and the men take care of the children. A classic Lisa See story--one of women's friendships and the larger forces that shape them--The Island of Sea Women introduces readers to the fierce and unforgettable female divers of Jeju Island and the dramatic history that shaped their lives.… (mais)

A new novel from Lisa See, the New York Times bestselling author of The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, about female friendship and family secrets on a small Korean island..
This was a very interesting book about the women divers of the Korean Island, Jeju. They were deep divers. and the book follows the lives of two of the divers when they were young girls through their lives as they age.
It was very moving and heartbreaking at times. I did not know about these remarkable women and very little of the history of Korea during this time. Highly recommended. ( )

The Korean “sea women” endure frigid waters to collect sea animals to sell & survive, for they are the breadwinners & heads of family on the island of Jeju, Korea. Men care for the children. I loved this matrifocal book about fiercely strong women thru the terrorizing Japanese & American occupations (read it & you’ll understand) to today. Brutal, absolutely brutal—so beware. I learned so much history in a compelling & heartbreaking story about female friendship and forgiveness under the harshest of circumstances. This edition has an interview with Lisa See and I don’t doubt her knowledge of the topic: her research was comprehensive. Beautifully written. Five stars in a heartbeat. ( )

See ens introdueix en el món de les haenyeo de l’illa sud-coreana de Jeju, les haenyeo (“dones del mar”) són bussejadores a pulmó lliure que busquen i pesquen els tresors comestibles que amaga el mar, pràctica llegendària que va ser inscrita en la Llista Representativa del Patrimoni Cultural Immaterial de la Humanitat de la UNESCO l’any 2016. Protagonistes d’una societat matrifocal, les haenyeo són dones fortes, valentes i independents que arrisquen la seva vida dia rere dia per sostenir econòmicament les seves família; són dones unides per un interès comú: l’amor i el respecte pel mar.
Lisa See ens parla de les haenyeo a través de la història de dues amigues que veuran la seves vides entrellaçades per sempre, superant guerres, adversitats i l’inexorable pas del temps. I és que See ens fa reflexionar sobre el poder de l’amistat: pot una relació d’amistat durar per sempre? És possible perdonar una traïció? Només el temps ho dirà. ( )

The Island of Sea Women is historical fiction about the women divers, or haenyeo, who live and work on the Korean Island of Jeju. It spans from the Japanese occupation in 1938 up through 2008. Mi-ja and Young-sook are baby divers and best friends. However, they have very different backgrounds. After they each marry, their relationship is tested in the ultimate way.

I enjoyed learning about the haenyeo (you watch can videos of them in action on YouTube) and the matriarchal society they live in. Because women’s bodies are better suited for diving, they are the breadwinners and the men are the main caregivers to the children. Everyone seems happy with this arrangement, which was refreshing.

That being said, this book is gut-wrenching. There is brutal violence in it that was hard to read. It’s one of those books where it feels weird to say I enjoyed it because so many terrible things happen in it. But I did like this book. I especially liked that it was full of strong women characters and I liked the historical aspect of it. Recommended. ( )

Just finished this book about a women’s diving cooperative on the small Korean island of Jeju in mid-20th century. To be honest, I didn’t find the characters particularly compelling, and the “strength of women’s friendships” that some readers feel this book celebrates seemed to me diminished by pettiness and failures of forgiveness, but the way women wielded the earning power and other historical aspects were fascinating. This small island was overrun repeatedly, by the Japanese before WWII, North Koreans, and Americans (during the Korean War). Personal and collective loyalties shift, and these women just keep diving into the sea for octopus, oysters, and abalone to keep their families alive. Definitely worth a read. ( )

No one picks a friend for us; we come together by choice. We are not tied together through ceremony or the responsibility to create a son; we tie ourselves together through moments. The spark when we first meet. Laughter and tears shared. Secrets packed away to be treasured, hoarded, and protected. The wonder that someone can be so different from you and yet still understand your heart in a way no one else ever will.
"Every woman who goes into the sea carries a coffin on her back. In this world, in the undersea world, we tow the burdens of this hard life."
Sometimes you must experience heartache to have a treasured result.
For a tree that has many branches, even a small breeze will shake some loose.
