My Rating: 4 Stars. The Island of Sea Women Information. Meet the Author, Lisa See.   THE ISLAND OF SEA WOMEN, however, is so much more than a tale of two women. It’s a multi-layered novel encompassing war, a culture in transition, domestic and political violence, endurance both physical and emotional. It’s an important book that brings to mainstream literature a tragic and neglected chapter in Korean history. The Island of Sea Women is an epoch set over many decades, beginning during a period of Japanese colonialism in the s and s, followed by World War II, the Korean War and its aftermath, through the era of cell phones and wet suits for the women divers. Throughout this time, the residents of Jeju find themselves caught between warring.

The Royal Navy Fireship COMET of by David Antscherl. The night was dark and the faint breeze was brisk. Fog hung heavy in the air over the deep blue, nearly black sea. A lone dreadnought sailed through the unnaturally calm waters of the Atlantic. This Scottish sailor made it into the history books when she became the first British woman to win two Olympic gold medals at two consecutive Olympic games, Sydney and Athens competing in the Yngling class. She went on to be named female World Sailor of the Year by the International Sailing Federation and was awarded an MBE in SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BOOKS. 1 Badcock, Peter & Lotter, Chas.

'First Lady' by Kay Cottee: Top of my list of the best sailing books; my first one on sailing women who are inspirational was on Kay Cottee for me she is number one! I had never sailed, not even thought about it until I read 'First Lady" the amazing story of her voyage around the world. This is one of my favourite sailing books because it is inspirational, some parts of my book are dog eared.
