schema:description"In a timeless village in rural Korean young Ehwa and her widowed mother live quietly together, best friends and confidantes. With each year that passes, Ehwa blossoms into a young woman as the spring rains bring a new glow to the verdant landscape around them. More changes come with the spring: a chance meeting with a young monk stirs new emotions in Ehwa's heart, and a mysterious artist becomes the first man to catch her mother's eye since the Ehwa's father died. As Ehwa discovers love and desire for the first time, her mother learns to open her heart again. -- Book Jacket."@en
