I think Pearl S. Buck is one of my newest favorite authors. I have read a few of her books now and have enjoyed them all. This one didn't disappoint! However, this one is a little different because the setting is in Vermont with an American lady narrating the story. Her husband is half Chinese and they lived in China for awhile so there are a few flashbacks and mentions of Chinese customs, but not so much as her other books. Very sad book about an American wife who is separated from her husband in China when the country became communist. Touching how she managed to stay so true to her husband after more than a decade of separation with little word from him.
