In case you hadn’t heard, my friend and book blogger extraordinaire has published a book that looks fabulous and I can’t wait to read it!
Even If the Sky Falls Down by Susan Jackson Bybee, aka The Blue-Hearted Bookworm.
Thirty-something American Lily Thompson is enjoying her life as an English teacher in a private kindergarten in Seoul, South Korea. When she breaks her ankle and loses her job, her handsome recruiter finds her a new position in the Korean countryside, teaching English to elders at a senior center. Lily is unsure how she’ll relate to students at the other end of the age spectrum, but things are not quite what they seem. Charged with documenting the memories of an eclectic range of elderly people sends Lily on a journey revealing a unique insight into both Korea’s troubled social history and her own life.
