Description

China through the eyes of eleven-year-old Mei Li-from school, to the market, to home. Mei Li begins seeing her culture through her English teacher's eyes, the American Missy. She finds herself exchanging Chinese ideas with the American and is both amused and shocked by her discoveries. When a classmate dies, she begins searching for eternal life, though everyone she knows tells her that death cannot be avoided. When her American teacher tells her that she has the cure for death, Mei Li begins making her family and friends uncomfortable by questioning what they believe. This in turn causes the adults, who understand that the people are not free to believe all that they want, to grow fearful of and for Mei Li. But Mei Li is unwilling to stop searching for the truth, vowing that someday she will discover how to live forever, like the Chinese symbol: the turtle.show more

About Sally Demaray Hull

Sally Demaray Hull wrote her first novel at age seventeen: The Trail Beyond. She set the manuscript aside when she left her home in Gladwin Michigan for college in Canada at Toronto Baptist Seminary and Bible College. Following this three year course, she attended Mid Michigan Community College and Central Michigan University, studying to be a teacher. After college, she pulled out the manuscript of The Trail Beyond and rewrote it. Over the years she has rewritten it a dozen times. Shortly after the first re-write, she wrote a sequel. The next thing she knew, she was writing fulltime. Over the years she became her parents' caregiver, a teacher in a Christian school and a substitute teacher in the public schools. She also taught TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in China for two years and earned her TESOL certificate from the Canadian National Institute. Though she has had various occupations, writing has always been present in her life. Most of her book covers are from the photos her husband Charlie has taken, being a photographer and a writer himself. Sally's desire is that her books help people to know God better.show more
