Description

An internationally best-selling author, Anchee Min draws upon her Chinese heritage to pen lush historical epics. Here she transports listeners to the Far East for a fictionalized account of acclaimed author Pearl Buck's youth. Arriving in late 19th-century China with her missionary parents, Buck is soon fascinated by her new home and strikes up a friendship with a young Chinese girl named Willow. The two become inseparable even as civil war, failed relationships, and world conflicts threaten all they hold dear.

Professional reviews

"Having written about such strong female characters as Madame Mao, Min now brings us a fascinating fictional account of the life of the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize, Pearl Buck. Buck grew up in China during the turbulence of the Boxer Uprising. Narrator Angela Lin meets the challenge of this epic story by rejecting the use of phony Chinese accents, instead concentrating on giving each character emotional depth and a unique voice. The quality of her singing voice is an added bonus that does much to make this production lush and captivating. Whether she's tackling a Chinese opera or a gospel hymn, Lin's voice is sweet and powerful--wonderful to hear. She makes this audio a delight. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
