Letter from Peking

Letter from Peking tells the story of longing and the endless paths of love. Separated by political conflicts and geographies, this novel written in the format of a memoir reminds us of the perilous journeys undertaken by families and individuals in a world stricken by violence and instability.

This novel could have been a monotonous lamenting on lost love, but in the hands of Pearl S Buck, this becomes a curious insight into the conflicted identities carried by many of us who have been uprooted from their native soil - also a reminder that relationships are not defined by logic and rationality, but by the ways of the heart!
