      The novels are best read in order, but the last two are not traditional sequels. But I read nothing in that book that could justify their continued connection over the years, and with how horrifically they treated each other, I just couldn't care about any of them anymore. Hated them, especially Helen. Jess is still wrapped in grief over her father's death, but she rises to the challenge of bringing her sister home. This would be a good book to read students in the classroom because it has a fairytale element as well as an informational element as far as types of adoption. She met with much success in a field that had produced much resistance, including sometimes violence against the inspectors.

      In a gesture of faith in life and a desire to continue his dream of providing a home for a waiting baby girl, Jess's mother makes the decision to continue with the adoption. They lived in the foreign-controlled territory of Tientsin, where Grace was one of a handful of Westerners to watch semicolonial China melt away and, later, to see all things Western or "bourgeois" purged under Mao. This layer is a societal and cultural one. Her books provide her personal answers to the question of how to achieve these desires.

      Told mostly through Grace's captivating, humorous letters and the articles she wrote for American newspapers and journals, the book sketches Grace's daily life and her changing views of the Communist government. They search for a Luminous Stone That Lights the Night, which they plan to give to the emperor in payment for the release of the Storyteller. I do like that there are not any cultural biases in the book. She follows him into his world, marries him, gets a functional American family and lives a great life, they both enjoy. Not only had she never kissed a man, but the film's ending portrayed her character leaving the orphans to re-join the colonel elsewhere, [12] even though in reality she did not retire from working with orphans until she was 60 years old. Order Book Review by Allison Martin Grace from China is an intriguing novel for older children and adults about a family's adoption from China.
