His fingers digging in my hair as he pulled me across the frozen ground. Now images shoved their way through my thoughts: Cumberland Island, two sunsets, lightning cracking in the sky. My mind screamed against the onslaught. Melissa’s eyes widening as she choked on her last breath. The rush of power that gave me the strength to put Death himself, and Boreas, under my control. Dreaming, you’re dreaming.

Book censorship in the People's Republic of China (PRC) is implemented or mandated by the PRC's ruling party, the Communist Party of China. Book censorship is widespread in China. Enforcement is strict and sometimes inconsistent. Punishment for violations can result in prison. The Chinese government is extremely sensitive to any opinions on the politics and history of China and its leaders that differ from currently sanctioned opinions, or that discuss topics which are officially taboo

Though she was freed from prison, a new danger awaits.... For months she suffered in Shanghai Prison Number 14. When Mei Lin was released and returned to her life in the rural village of Tanching, she should have been content. She lived at home with her father and grandmother, working in the rice fields and sharing the gospel alongside Liko, her fiancé. But when a friend invites her to help in an orphanage for the summer, Mei Lin knows that God has given her both the desire and the opportunity to serve him in a new way. Liko, though, fears Mei Lin's return to Shanghai so soon after her incarceration and so soon after his own father died for his faith. But while Mei Lin is away, it is Liko who ends up facing the greater danger, in a form no one expected.... In this sequel to Daughter of China, author C. Hope Flinchbaugh again opens a window on the shocking struggles and inspiring faith of Christians in the Chinese church.

You don't have to be a Christian to understand this or to see what it talks about.
There are several themes in this books that raised issues in China that are very important in addressing.

Now this is a Christian fiction book however what is talked about here is all too real.

Issues such as...

Christian Persecution

The One-Child Policy

Inhumain state orphanages

Child abandonment

Cult kidnappings (this chronicaled Eastern Lighning)

Brainwashing

The crulty and falsity of Communisum

But not only that but the characters in this book have lessions to learn too and learn vaulable lessions about...

Self-sacrifice

Sticking together

Mei Lin finds that she is barren because of beatings and torture in prison but is scare to admit it because of the stigma. She wants to adopt a newborn baby girl she found thrown in a trash can (as a result of favoring males in the one-child policy) to hide this fact but learns she needs to be honest with herself.

Supporting others in the hardest of times

Loving others for who they are no matter what

Not ignoring your gut feeling when something doesn't seem right.

Listening to God first

Forgivness

Courage in the face of great danger

The Author C.Hope Flinchbaugh really did speak with Chinese citizens on this issue and got to hear it from those that experenced this first hand. The way she presented this was well done and showed the trails all of them are going through wether it is grieving over murdered loved ones,barreness,or forgivness.
I reccomend all of these books 1-3 at the time of this review (please write a forth if the author reads this).

I started this book out of curiosity but quickly got drawn into the lives of the characters. I always enjoy a book that reveals insights into Chinese culture,and this book does that well. It was heartening to learn of the vast and growing network of underground Christian churches in China, too. There were a few confusing plot points, but nothing major, and a growing sense of danger and suspense keeps the story moving nicely. There's some "demonology" here--the binding and casting out of evil, and I liked the portrayal. By the end, one feels that there are truly brothers and sisters in Christ in this country--many of whom have suffered terrible persecution for their faith. As the United States grows increasingly intolerant of Christians, we might do well to take note of where such intolerance eventually leads, if not checked.

I read this book because it was offered free for my Kindle. The writing was so good, and the subject was so compelling, that I ordered the other two books in the trilogy. The author has done much research, so the reader learns information about events in other countries, while connecting with the characters in the story. My eyes were opened to the desperate situation in one country, and I had a hard time putting this book down. I highly recommend all three books.

I grew to love the family in the story. I have read the entire series of 3 books and have since passed them on to a friend in a foriegn country. I am eager to see what she thinks of the stories.

This book is carefully researched and well written. I had never thought about this aspect of the church in China (that there are cults there that would try to subvert believers) and Hope Flinchbaugh opened my eyes to it. She is an excellent writer and her heart for people comes through in her words. I recommend this book highly.

I laughed, I cried and in parts I wanted to scream and fight because of the injustices. Most of all I praised God for the strong believers.

I want to thank you for writing this book. It reminded me that there are,to this day, people that fight and die for their belief in God.

Although it is fiction, I believe this book to be based on actual conditions in China. I loved this book and also the next 2, Daughter Of China, and I'll Cross The River. At times this book had me in tears, but I believe everyone should read of the suffering our brothers and sisters in China endure.
Completely enjoyed Book 2. It was even more gripping with suspense than Book 1. Both I found hard to put down. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the Christians living in China. It amazed me that such hardship is being experienced by believers, since these books are actual experiences of Chinese Christians placed in a fictional setting to protect their identity.
