To the Edge of the Sky

Availability: Out Of Stock

Anhua Gao's parents were hailed as revolutionary martyrs by Mao Tse-Tung. In her early years she knew love and support and grew up in a privileged world. But when they tragically both died, leaving her and her siblings orphans, all they were left with was their parents' fading reputation to guide them through the unimaginable horrors of twentieth century China. The fabric of her family life torn apart by the catastrophic whims of the state, Anhua was truly alone - something she only realized fully when she was denounced to the authorities by her own sister. She was the victim of private cruelty at the hands of her brutal husband and suffered public humiliation when the security police accused her of being an enemy agent because she wrote and spoke English. She was eventually thrown into jail where she experienced appalling deprivations and bore witness to hideous torture. This is the story of how Anhua first struggled with and then against the ideological machine of Red China. It is a story of pain and horror, turmoil and tragedy. But most of all it is the story of a woman who found courage, hope and humour, and who, against unbelievable odds, survived.
