Added 1/27/09.
I'll never forget this book. It told such a touching story.

==================================
Addendum 3/26/13:
Amazon description: "Alone in exotic Chungking, beautiful foreign correspondent Stephanie Ryder is warned to keep silent about the atrocities she witnesses in the city's teeming slums. Defying a brutal Kuomintang officer, she is swept to an electrifying first meeting with Dr. Jen Yong, a handsome, dedicated and compassionate Chinese surgeon. For Yong, a sexual liaison with an American woman could mean a death sentence. For Stephanie, an affair with an Asian man would cause an irreparable breach with her Texas millionaire father. But just when dangers to threatens to separate them forever, their passion bursts into flame, and carries them on a fabulous romantic journey from the stormy depths of fear and desire, to the moving affirmation that enduring love is truly a many-splendored thing."

Addendum 3/5/12:
Below are some details about this book.
The author, Han Suyin was a physician. A member review from LibraryThing says:
========================================
"This is a gritty and highly detailed novel of the Second World War in China. The Nationalist government of Chiang Kai-Shek has become corrupt and oppressive, sending flocks of patriotic Chinese to the Communist side. Han Suyin vividly describes the teeming poverty of China."
