"Tough as Fine Silk: Escape From Beijing" - Now Available for Kindle, Nook, iPad and other e-Readers
"Tough as Fine Silk" is a fast-paced and subtly alluring tale of love and betrayal that takes readers on an exhilarating journey through this ancient land’s fascinating historical sites.
Michael Sorensen, a Californian working in Beijing as an electronics engineer, has a frightening encounter on China’s Great Wall. A beautiful young Chinese woman, Li Juan, trips on a stairway above him and literally falls into his arms. If he hadn’t caught her, she could have been killed. Juan is the star attraction at Beijing’s Blue Moon night club. She leaves the elegant club for a day job to spend more time with Michael. After Michael is involved in a hit-and-run car accident, he is shaken, but unharmed. Hearing about the accident, Juan is terrified, fearing that her former bosses may be responsible and that both their lives are endangered.
The couple flees Beijing to embark on a long train journey that takes them through historical China. Will the couple be able to escape danger and find true love, or are there more twists and turns ahead? This stunning love story plays out with a master’s deft touch as the words flow like Fine Silk.
“The story is a superb mix of East and West, of seeming openness of the two lovers with each other, but there is always a bit of doubt and mystery in the background. [The readers] become thoroughly involved and engaged in the lovers’ adventure and affection for each other as they are trying to escape from an as yet unknown threat to their lives and their future together. Lessons are learned by the central couple and not always in an easy way. Tough as Fine Silk takes the reader on an amazing journey through a passionate love story and, at the same time, on an adventure through China’s ancient historical sites and recent historical events.” – Hedi Roethel, Artist
