The City of Tranquil Light by Bo Caldwell

I loved reading this book, and it is haunting me.  Set in China from 1906-1966, this is the story of two Mennonites who go to China to do mission work.  They fall in love and marry, forming a wonderful team. She, Katherine, is trained as a nurse, and he, Will,  a preacher.  Together they bring a shining example of faith and love to the Chinese they serve.

This novel is beaurifully writen, and combines themes of love, faith loss and determination along with a good dose of (often violent) Chinese history and politics.  I highly recommend it, and look forward to reading the author's other book.  (The Distant Land of my Father was published in 2002.)
Historic Fiction well told.
