China Homecoming is the incredible true story of award-winning author Jean Fritz’s childhood in China.
Speaking Chinese, Jean felt welcome when she revisited China. Memories of her childhood washed over her as she visited her old home and the British School she had attended. Both had changed just as history had changed her hometown of Wuhan, but listeners will be moved at what it meant to Jean when she was declared an honorary citizen.
“An intriguing fusion of autobiography, history, and travelogue…A personal, and finally, moving book. It is also a vivid portrait of a developing nation and a reminder that history is people who live through events and then go on.”—Booklist
