— image credit:

The Bainbridge Library Book Group will talk about “Daughter of China” by Meihong Xu at their next gathering at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 28 at the Bainbridge Public Library.

The book is a stunning true tale of a remarkable woman trained as an elite soldier in the Chinese army, her forbidden love for an American, and her seemingly impossible escape – with his help – from the nation to which she had pledged her life.
