Bai Lu

Senior Architect

The need to hide their background, their struggle to survive, their deprivations, the hunger, the bad treatment by officials, the terror of saying or doing something wrong and provoking wrath, colored her days with dark strokes. A very revealing book of the documented history of that period. The history and suffering are real, though the story is an adaptation of the reality of the heroine. A Young Adult version is being prepared and will soon be published.
