    Hardcover ☆ Honolulu ePUB Ø honolulu ebok, Honolulu PDFI wasn't very impressed with Honolulu The book's protagonist is a Korean picture bride who finds herself in Oahu in the 1930s and the book covers a period of time stretching from 1915 or so in Korea to just before WWII thankfully Brennert didn't try to cover Pearl Harbor tooThe main problem I found was that Brennert simply tried to cover too much information too many issues and too many themes It was utterly unbelievable that nearly every famous or infamous person in Honolulu during the aforementioned period would have some link to one unknown Korean woman yet she seemed to be on intimate terms with everyone from the prostitutes of Iliwei to the famous cop Chang

    Hardcover ☆ Honolulu ePUB Ø honolulu ebok, Honolulu PDFI was born in Hawaii and spent 18 fabulous months in Korea as a missionary When perusing books at the library I stumbled on this little gem and loved it from the start While in Korea in the late 1980's I wondered at the social rules of the day Women walked behind their husbands men 'owned' their wives and domestic abuse was high women did not eat meals with their husbands rather they remained in the kitchen young adults in love could neither hold hands nor kiss in public girls covered their mouths when they laughed a woman could treat her daughter in law horribly and other such rules I remember going to a home for dinner
