In this vivid, impressive account of a country at peace and at war China's First Lady voices passionate belief in her people, in their capacity to endure and gather strength from the present crisis.
Madame Chiang Kai-shek, the wife of the Generalissimo and daughter of the famous Soong family, knows China as few people do. She has traveled into its most remote provinces. She has watched its magnificent progress in times of peace as it sought to emerge from the medieval into the modern world. She has shared the suffering of its people, has given of her money, time and devotion to the work of an orphanage for the children of China's soldiers. She has been present in bombardments of Chinese cities by the Japanese, one of which is described in vivid detail. She knows the moral strength, the religious faith sustaining the Chinese. And looking ahead, beyond the discouragements of the present, she sees hope of a greater, more effective nation.
All this is the bone and substance of her book, which is a richly personal document, sensitive, observant, courageous, and at the same time a singularly revealing commentary on a people of tragic interest to Westerners at this time.
