Publisher's Summary

Two orphan girls are taken from their jobs in a pants factory in North Korea, spirited across the Demilitarized Zone to be sex workers in the South, and eventually shipped to the United States. What propels the story is Gi, the heroine: a tender-hearted genius who loses everything yet refuses to be destroyed.
Reminiscent of Memoirs of a Geisha, All Woman and Springtime reveals with chilling accuracy the facts of life behind North Korea's iron curtain, the horrific underworld of the sex trade, and the resilience of a spirit in the midst of unspeakable oppression.

Critic Reviews

“One of the most absorbing, chilling, beautifully written and important novels I have read in many years.” (Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple)
“A lovely novel brimming with heartache and hope in equal measure. Jones has a gift for empathy as well as a keen sense of justice. This book will open your eyes, break your heart, and then mend it again.” (Tayari Jones, author of Silver Sparrow)

This book is great!!

What did you love best about All Woman and Springtime?

The characters were so well developed and the imagery he created of North Korea was amazing. Believable storyline and kept my interest up until the very end.
