Item description for Letters from the Great Wall by Jenni Daiches...
You cant run away from things here in China, theres too much confronting you. Eleanor Dickinson needs to see things differently. To most her life would seem ideal; 33 years old, a professional university lecturer in a respectable relationship with a man who is keen to start a family. But Eleanor is dissatisfied: shes suffocated by her family and frustrated by the man she has no desire to marry. She has to escape. In the summer of 1989, she cuts all ties and leaves behind the safe familiarity of Edinburgh to lecture in the eastern strangeness of China, a country on the brink of crisis. Basing herself in Beijing, she sets off on an intense voyage of self-discovery. But as the young democracy movement flexes its muscles, Eleanor is soon drawn into the unfolding drama of an event that captured the worlds attention. What freedoms will be asserted in this ancient nation, shaped both by tradition and revolution? And will Eleanor discover what really matters in her life before the tanks roll into Tiananmen Square?
