The Spirit of the Dragon

The Spirit of the Dragon This story starts with a death in a nursing home and an old woman is brought in for questioning because she was present at the death scene The old woman asks for a specific lawyer Anna Carlson before she will speak Then, she tells them her story How she was Korean and married off to a Japanese man, and had his child, and lived in his family s home while her husband went off to learn to be a doctor How she and her son were separated and she escaped with the help of the family s chauffeur How she worked in a resistance camp You ll have to read the rest of it it s worth it. This was my first book by this author and when I finished this book I immediately went and bought the first book in this trilogy You can read this book as a standalone without any problems It tells the story of a young Korean women starting just before WWII to present day It is a story of hardship, tragedy, courage and a love that will never die.This was the first book I read about Korea and I didn t know a lot about its history so it was very interesting to read about it and the issues that are told in this book are sadly still current I wish they weren t though.I will definitely recommend this book. The Spirit of the Dragon by William Andrews is a gripping, bittersweet HF novel that is much then a tail of the atrocities that beheld many at the hands of the Japanese during WWII, but also a story of undying love and devotion and soulmates that overcome all odds and find their rightful place together in the end Great read that hurts at the same time.Thank you NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for this ARC and in return I am submitting my unbiased and voluntary review and opinion This is posted to my GR account immediately and will be posted to my , Bookbub, and BN accounts upon publication. I like reading a book based in the country I m visiting while I m there so was very glad when NetGalley offered this title for review just before my trip to South Korea Though it was hard to reconcile the Korea then and the Korea I saw, I thoroughly enjoyed the book So much so that just before reaching the last page of the Spirit of the Dragon, I hurriedly went and bought the other earlier titles in the series Well done, Mr Andrews, you portrayed the story of Suk Bo so sensitively and in such an engrossing way I don t know the history of Korea so can t comment on how accurate the background of the story is but I ll bet your research in the matter was intense This is the type of fiction that keeps me turning the pages I do wish the ending was different though Thank you NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for the ARC This is my honest review.
