Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
Set against the tumultuous backdrop of China’s Communist Revolution in the 1930s, this extraordinary novel brings the legendary Dr. Norman Bethune vividly to life. An eager volunteer with Mao’s Eighth Route Army as it fights against the Japanese invaders, Bethune is the stoic model of heroism as a medical teacher, an organizer of much-needed field hospitals and a war surgeon operating on countless casualties. But at night, on an ancient typewriter, he composes a long letter to the one person in his life he wishes he had not left behind — the baby daughter he has never met. Haunted by the child’s mother, Kajsa, whom he abandoned during the Spanish Civil War, and faced with imminent death, Bethune must confront the sum of his life.
