(From the publisher):
This is the story of an Eurasian girl's love for Mark, correspondent of a British newspaper, later killed in Korea. It tells of a perfect union between a man and a woman, which though doomed yet possesses an imperishable, deathless quality. The author, with her Western medical training and Chinese instincts and sympathies, writes with unfaltering honesty of a refugee-crowded Hong Kong and a China where the old traditions are dying out.
