About this item
Though seemingly tame by contemporary standards, this tale of suggested interracial romance proved to be shocking in its day. Missionary Megan Davis travels from her staid New England home to Shanghai during China's civil unrest in the 1930s. There, she joins her fiance, Robert Strike, but the couple is separated while trying to liberate an orphanage -- and Megan falls into the hands of Chinese warlord General Yen. To their mutual surprise, Megan and General Yen develop an affinity for one another. Though he orders the massacre of hundreds during the day, Yen at night reveals a rueful, poetic side, and their affection deepens. However, the inroads made by Chinese rebels threaten to end their tentative courtship in a bloody manner that, Yen surmises, has been predetermined by his own deeds.
