This is the best book I have read since Rohinton Mistry's epic "A Fine Balance". The characters are real, flawed, people who I would like to know. The story of loss, bitterness, forgiveness and surrender is powerful and poignant.

A very moving book. It flowed easily between the thoughts of the husband in the present day husband and the past journals of the wife.

I picked this book off of the shelf on a whim - - not knowing anything about it or the author. It turned out to be an incredible treasure. A book that touched my heart and mind beyond explanation.

A book about a pious Christian life.

An enthralling love story about Will and Katherine Kiehn, their adopted country of China, and their God--a deceptively straightforward tale told in powerful, profound prose. It's based on the life of Caldwell's maternal grandparents, who were missionaries in China and Taiwan from 1906 to 1961. In melding fiction and truth, we learn about remarkable lives, but also sense that we are discovering what Caldwell herself has learned of life and love and faith.
