This is a really lovely little book. I had to remind myself several times that it was a true story.

Shu Wen leaves China to look for her husband of just 30 days whom she is told has been killed in Tibet. What follows is a 30 year search for her husband and the people she meets along the way. The story is extraordinary, and Shu Wen never gives up hope, in all those years, of finding her husband.

I devour all books about China and this was no different. Incredible story.

Sherry I have the same appreciation for books about China and this one looks like something I'd enjoy very much. Another added to the TBR list. :)

Jenny I'm glad you liked it!

Mary Knuth It is a novel not a true story
