I'm absolutely in love with this, and I can't wait to pick up the sequels when I get to work today. The black and white drawings were so gorgeous that I kept turning pages long after I'd intended to go to bed last night, until I ended up just finishing it in one sitting. ( )

This book is not only gorgeous but tells a really great story. This follows Ehwa and her widowed mother. Ehwa starts out as a child and is slowly developing into a teen, and experiencing first loves and the beginning of becoming a woman. This is a stark contrast to her mother, a very young widow who misses having someone to connect with. They have a very close relationship. The book is filled with both verbal and visual symbolism and is well worth a read. ( )

With each year that passes, Ehwa blossoms into a young woman as the spring rains bring a new glow to the verdant landscape around them. More changes come with the spring: a chance meeting with a young monk stirs new emotions in Ehwa's heart, and a mysterious artist becomes the first man to catch her mother's eye since Ehwa's father died.
