Summary
A Chinese dissident is torn between love and country in this novel from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Good Earth. When Wu I-wan starts taking an interest in revolution, trouble follows: Winding up in prison, he becomes friends with fellow dissident En-lan. Later, his name is put on a death list and he’s shipped off to Japan. Thankfully, his father, a wealthy Shanghai banker, has made arrangements for his exile, putting him in touch with a business associate named Mr. Muraki. Absorbed in his new life, I-wan falls in love with Mr. Muraki’s daughter, and must prove he is worthy of her hand. As news spreads of what the Japanese army is doing back in China, I-wan realizes he must go back and fight for the country that banished him. The Patriot is an engrossing story of revolution, love, and reluctantly divided loyalties by the Nobel Prize–winning author renowned for her novels set in Asia and informed by the sweep of history, including the New York Times bestsellers The Living Reed and The Hidden Flower. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate
