"Not only is this book extraordinarily entertaining and well written, it is likely to become a significant source of China's history and development as personally witnessed by an insightful participant.

Highly Recommended on many levels."

Grady Harp, Amazon Top 50 Hall of Fame Reviewer

"A deeply intimate and revealing portrait of 'real life' inside China before and after the climactic Tiananmen Square Incident. Writer Anna Wang confronts her own country's history with eyes wide open.


John J. Kelly, Detroit Free Press

"Anna Wang brings us a powerful and deeply personal story of China, human rights, and the progression of a people."

Pamela Gossiaux

Author and Speaker

"By just about any measure, author Anna Wang has crafted a remarkable and intense memoir that deftly blends her own personal life with pre and post events related to the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests led by students in Beijing, China. Wang also raises the question if citizenship in counties such as Canada and the USA further immigrants feeling of belonging to the host nation or will their always be a deep yearning for their motherland?"

Norm Goldman, Publisher & Editor,

"Wang's memoir artfully braids the personal and the political. This is an analytically rigorous and exceedingly thoughtful autobiography that intelligently chronicles the grand forces of history without ever forgetting about the lives caught up in them. A moving recollection of personal and national identity."
