The Color of Heaven by Kim Dong Hwa

The Color of Heaven is an intriguing graphic novel about how seventeen-year-old Ehwa begins to understand and experience love and relationships as she says good-bye to her love, the man she plans to marry. She, only having her mother as a role model, waits for her love to come back to her. This book concludes the trilogy and is beautifully written to bring together Ehwa and her true love. The author, Dong Hwa Kim, creates interesting characters that the reader can easily relate to, in such ways as relationships, patience and love.

Even though the authors voice is clear throughout the book, it becomes tedious and redundant at times. The story is lovely altogether, but while reading this book you feel as if you're reading through pages and pages of the Ehwa, the main character, waiting for her love. A wonderful end to the trilogy, though not as good as expected.
