I found my way to this book because it was on a list of books featuring trains on the NPR website (June 2014).

I thought this story was well done, very moving. It's wonderful because it's a little girl and her grandmother interacting, the grandmother is sharing some of their family's history, even though that history is painful and we learn about what the start of the Korean war was like for people in south, what an invasion meant for them. The artwork is especially lovely.

I would recommend that the paperback or hardcover book be bought as the Kindle version does not read or flow well. You see the open book view and then the individual page view and then there are the pictures without the words and then there is the text on its own (the same format as the 'Look Inside' sample view). It made for a confusing and disjointed reading experience.

Edit (2014/12/20):
Just saw this: 'This title has complex layouts and has been optimized for reading on devices with larger screens.' (It's below the title, under how many pages are in this book.) I read on my Kindle app on my iPad mini so, yeah, that explains why I had issues with the Kindle version.

Sumi is a Korean-American girl who lives with her grandmother, whom she calls Harmony (which means grandmother in Korean), on East Blossom Hill. Her mother is in the army and Sumi is homesick for her. Sumi watches the trains in the valley below hoping that someday her mother will be on one. The train whistle reminds Sumi's grandmother of when the Korean War took place. She and her family escaped from Seoul, Korea just before the war came. This marked a very sorrowful time in Harmony's life because she had to leave her husband behind in Seoul to travel to Pusan, which was safe. Though her husband loved her, he insisted that he needed to take part in the war by being a soldier.
I like this book because it has great description. You can read it when you want to read a good book but you don't have too much time to read. It is a mixture between a chapter book and a picture book. The illustrations are amazing. The writer involoves you in the story so you can imagine everything that is happening as if it was happening to you. It was very easy for me to put myself in the place of the characters in the book so I could "be in the story".
This is an excellent book. It is the best picture or short story I've ever read. The pictures illustrate the writing well and add something to the book. I would recommend it to anyone over the age of 9. It is a very emotional book and the author clearly describes the sad events in the characters' lives.

This is a book of interest for children to learn about the love among real people involved with real wars. The separation of a daughter and her mother, as the mother trains to be a soldier, and the death of a grandfather in the Korean war, are themes of this children's book, deep subjects. This is not the type of book you just hand to a child, but it requires some explanation from a mentoring adult such as a parent or teacher, to help them understand the realities of war and what it did to the lives of Asians. Most often we read books of this sort from the perspective of Americans, so this provides a different point of view, and helps us see persons from across the ocean with real emotions and family lives the same as hours. It explores the idea of North Koreans escaping to South Korea also, an ongoing issue to this day in 2012.

the art is beautiful, too.

Read to my early grammar school kids while studying the Korean war, made me cry! See rough the eyes of civilians.

This is a magnificent book for readers of all ages to enjoy and explore. Younger children may enjoy it on it's simplest level of a child missing a mother. Older readers will enjoy learning about the effects of war on family and friends. Everyone will savor the gracious art of the illustrator and will feel the story through his heartfelt interpretation of the author's words. Haemi Balgassi has truly written this story from her heart and tears and we are more than fortunate to be able share her family's history. Every classroom should own a copy of this wonderful history lesson
