About the Book

The Chinese Lady’s Secret is an autobiographical work recounting the adventures of a Western family living in China during the middle portion of the past decade. It attempts to describe in painful detail the day-to-day challenges that they faced both personally and professionally. In the process, it provides the reader with a rare glimpse into this ancient eastern civilization. The clashes between the eastern and western philosophies are clearly evident and the principal character, the author, often finds himself in situations that are compromising in the western paradigm.

Though the events make a compelling story for any reader, travelers to China either for the short-term or the long-term should partake of these adventures before beginning their own journeys. It is written as a story within a story and as you may have already guessed, the title is a double-entendre implying that some of the secrets of the Chinese civilization are revealed in the telling of the broader tale.
