Winter in China by Douglas Galbraith

Book Description

Just down from Cambridge in the summer of 1937, Sally Marsden contemplates her future without enthusiasm. So many have assumed she will marry Hugh Jerrold it is, practically, an engagement. When Hugh returns from his diplomatic posting to China they will be married. But before submitting to the strictures of upper-middle-class life, Sally embarks on one last adventure - travelling to China herself, where she will spend the winter. The Sino-Japanese war begins shortly after Sally's arrival and a disastrous miscalculation separates her from Hugh and leaves her trapped in Nanking, one of two dozen Europeans and Americans to witness the capture and sack of the city by the Japanese Imperial Army. The experience is shared with Peter Moss, an American photo-journalist and friend of Hugh. Bystanders in a racial war, Sally and Peter emerge physically unscathed but utterly changed, and all their attempts to carry on as before quickly founder.

Books By Author Douglas Galbraith

My Son, My Son by Douglas Galbraith My Son, My Son, Paperback (April 2013)

What do you do when your wife abducts your children? This title is a provocative journey through complex and controversial territory: child murder, tsunami, international conventions, hatred, cultures at war. It goes to the heart of relations between parents and children, men and women, and between races - to the heart of what it is to be alive.

King Henry by Douglas Galbraith King Henry, Paperback (February 2008)

Neutral America is debating the proper response to the war in Europe. Increasingly involved in this debate is Henry Ford: inventor, industrialist, billionaire. He is against war - it is bad for business. Into his orbit comes Rosika Schwimmer, who persuades him that a Peace Ship filled with the great and the good should sail to Europe.

A "user-friendly" version of the Panel on Doctrine's Report on the Interpretation of Scripture, this workbook offers a helpful way of exploring, using and "interpreting" Scripture in daily life.
