Rex Bonner’s next case began with the appearance of a strange and engaging woman. She arrived at the office with a very odd and unusual tale to tell. The roots of which began in war-torn Italy in 1944. A group of young girls who had banded together for their own safety, security, and survival received the support from an old and broken-down Catholic convent. There, they became revitalized and, with the advent of an old man’s efforts and skills, developed into a group of killers. With the end of hostilities, the girls spread across the plains of Europe and the lands of Liberty until one day, years later, a member of the group suddenly materialized in Rex’s office. Listening to tales that stretched the imagination beyond the breaking point and covering other issues with obvious likes gave Mr. Bonner a basis to assist and investigate the strange events from the platform of “gelatin” that swayed with every step.

Blood Sisters tells the story of Jeong Yeoul, a young Korean college student in the 1980's, when the memory of President Chun Doohwan's violent suppression of student demonstrations against martial law was still fresh. Yideum captures with raw honesty the sense of dread felt by many Korean women during this time as Jeong struggles in a swirl of misguided desires and hopelessness against a society distorted by competing ideologies, sexual violence, and cultural conservatism. Facing this helplessness, her impulse is to escape into the world of art. Blood Sisters is a vivid, powerful portrayal of a woman’s efforts to live an authentic life in the face of injustice.

"[A] gem of a book... enlivened by incisive analysis, exquisite detail and an elegant and witty style." --Alison Weir The Wars of the Roses, which tore apart the ruling Plantagenet family in fifteenth-century England, was truly a domestic drama, as fraught and intimate as any family feud before or since. But as acclaimed historian Sarah Gristwood reveals, while the events of this turbulent time are usually described in terms of the men who fought and died seeking the throne, a handful of powerful women would prove just as decisive as their kinfolks' clashing armies. A richly drawn, absorbing epic, Blood Sisters reveals how women helped to end the Wars of the Roses, paving the way for the Tudor age--and the creation of modern England.
