Anhua Gao’s parents were hailed as revolutionary heroes. In her early years she knew love and support and grew up in a privileged world.
But when they both tragically died, all she was left with was her parent’s fading reputation to guide her through the horrors of 20th century China.
This is the story of how Anhua first struggled with and then against the ideological machine of Red China. It is a story of pain and horror, turmoil and tragedy.
But most of all it is the story of a woman who found courage, hope and humour and who, against unbelievable odds, survived.
This is such a moving story that I could not wait to delve deeper into Anhua’s story. There are highs and lows, tears and laughter in this beautifully descriptive book. To find out what really happened in China in the 20 Th Century and how it affected Anhua is incredible. A really touching read.
