What I Thought: This is the final book in the Color trilogy. It has a wonderful ending. Ehwa finally knows what love is about. She had several challenges along the way. She is older and learning many new and exiting things. She sees some old friends. So, I hope you like this book as much as I do.

The Color of Earth

Blurb: Ehwa grows up helping her widowed mother run the local tavern, watching as their customers – both neighbors and strangers – look down on her mother for her single lifestyle.  Their social status isolates Ehwa and her mother from the rest of the people in their quiet country village.  But as she gets older and sees her mother fall in love again, Ehwa slowly begins to open up to the possibility of love in her life.

3 out of 5 stars

What I Thought: This book is mostly about kids discovering their body. They are learning about love. Ehwa gets a flower from a boy and she admires it. Whenever she sees the flower her heart is fills with love. I felt uncomfortable when the kids explored their and other’s bodies.
