An article recently posted by The Sun shares how North Korea received the ire of various international countries after they test fired a missile in the seas of Japan last March 15, 2013. This just goes to show that threats to world safety are still an impending issue in today’s generation and that unresolved diplomatic conflicts in the past can continuously plague the people of the present. In line with this, author Adrienne Harrell’s new book titled Korea, Her Story offers a literary reminder of the impact left by the Korean War and how it molded the fate of a group of women who struggled to survive for the sake of their families.
