A VAST PORTRAYAL OF OLD CHINA, AND A YOUNG ENGLISH WOMAN, A TORN BETWEEN TWO CULTURES
Spanning the last forty years of the old Imperial dynasties, JADE sweeps across the land of China recreating the beauty, the violence, the bigotry in the last crumblings of a giant civilisation.
From the terrifying massacre of the Christian community in Tientsin, to the ancient and exotic formalities of the Chu household, we follow Alice...young, sometimes frightened, often betrayed by the men who love her, but always courageously seeking a place for herself between two totally opposing worlds.
