Feather in the Storm

I never tire learning about individuals who survived in China during Mao’s regime.  Before traveling there recently, I read Feather in the Storm: A Childhood Lost in Chaos by Larry Englemann and Emily Wu. On one China Air flight recently, I sat next to a young woman whose grandparents told her they endured hardships similar to these Chinese authors and only stayed alive to care for her mother and aunt.  Many stories like this won’t become books but touch my heart as much as the published works.
