About the Book:
Stephen's comfortable but empty existence is transformed by an unexpected visitor from his past. Forced to face up to the consequences of a love long suppressed, he is drawn back to his time teaching in Beijing, China during the Spring of 1989. There he toyed with the people and events of the pro-democracy movement, only in search of youthful adventure. Despite his naivety, he was drawn inexorably towards both. Though travel took him from the Great Wall to the plains of Inner Mongolia, there was no escaping the pull of Tiananmen Square on the night of 4th June.
