"The thing that got me about Shanghai in the Summer of 1948 was that nobody thought anything was going to happen. It was happening all around them and still they said nothing was going to happen.
When I got off the ship that day in July, I didn't know either. I went in there trying to keep my eyes open, trying to just look for a good adventure story, because adventure stories were marketable -- and because my exchequer was sadly in need of marketable writing. I should have been more knowledgeable then, about the great story of China's upheaval. But simply enough, I needed money. A woman had let me to this situation. Another woman was about to lead me into a more gratifying one."
Thus begins the story of Scott Osterman and beautiful photographer Martha Shoop, whose lives become inextricably bound together when they plunged headlong into the turmoil of the Chinese Civil War.
Their passionate love story is told against the background of exciting events and desperate situations in which only their devotion to each other and the cause of freedom sustained them.
