Long ago and far away
For Troth Mei-Lian Montgomery, honor means carrying the news of her husband Kyle's death to his family back in England. But when Kyle himself re-enters her life, Troth confronts a man uncertain about the woman he's chosen in Mary Jo Putney's The China Bride. Kyle and Troth explore their own relationship amid the challenges of her bi-racial Scots-Chinese heritage. Set against a backdrop of historical China and England, Mary Jo Putney captures in exquisite detail the profound panorama of both cultures. And between those cultures, both Kyle and his China Bride must overcome the supreme challenge of their own emotional conflicts to be together.
