Reviews - What do customers think about Closing the Circle: An American Family in China?
A jubilant and poignant testimony of one woman's love for China Jul 4, 2005
Closing The Circle: An American Family In China is the story of a woman born in China, the daughter of devoted missionaries, who left the land of her birth and returned 60 years later to "close the circle". Black and white photographs illustrate this thoughtful portrait of pre-Communist China through young eyes, as well as a more sober understanding that comes with adulthood and age. Cherishing the friends old and new made within China's lands, as well as giving testimony to the efforts of programs and hospitals of the past and present to treat diseases, eradicate opium, slavery, and famine, and improve the quality of life, Closing The Circle resonates with the author's love for China's land its people. A jubilant and poignant testimony of one woman's love for China from the depths of her heart.
