Anchee Min’s — Pearl of China *****

Pearl’s father is a missionary in China. When Pearl befriends a Chinese girl her own age, Pearl and Willow become inseparable. But under Mao’s repressive regime, Pearl’s family is forced to flee China. For years, the friends have no contact with each other because Pearl fears this could endanger Willow’s family, but will they ever meet again?

This story is based on Pearl S. Buck’s early life in China where she developed a deep love of the country.
