Reader's comments:
- Jean Fritz narrates her youth growing up in China, daughter of YMCA Presbyterian missionaries.
- The depiction of the growing Chinese resistance to European spheres of influence, which exploded in the Boxer Rebellion, creates a feeling of being there at an exciting and dangerous time.

I agree with Mai. Homesick is definitely your book.
