KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a book that makes China live through the story of Han Suyin's childhood, the China of the war lords, China struggling into new birth, China rising from the ashes of continuous attack, bombing, defeat, rebirth, China persisting, even in these last years of continuous warfare, in remote and sheltered oases of peace. It is a stirring autobiography of a girl of the upper classes who goes to England to college, meets again a childhood friend, falls in love, and returns with him to wartorn China to play their part. Fascinating reading.
