In the dangerous summer of 1937, American missionary Shirley Carson finds
herself caught up in the Japanese invasion of North China and the rise of
Communism. Shirley must choose between her desire to help the Chinese
Reds by serving as a nurse and her impulse to protect her teenage son by
escaping the war-ravaged country before it’s too late.

“Gripping, convincing, and
heartbreaking, Dreams of the
Red Phoenix
is powerfully
evocative of the complexities
of life in 1930s China. A real
page-turner and thought-
provoker—wonderful.”
