The Good Earth – a Wonderful Story

I loved reading The Good Earth. It’s such a timeless story with lessons as valuable today as when they were written. Although happy when he was a hard working farmer, Wang Lung aspired to become one of the wealthy landowners he despised; only to discover that when separated from the land, life did not have the richness and beauty it once had.

So beautifully written and a heartbreaking depiction of what life was like for the people of China in the early 1900s.
