Award-winning author Jeffrey Meyer has launched a blog on Goodreads to celebrate and explore his experiences with China and to address questions he's received about his Benjamin Franklin Award Winning novel, A Call to China. You can read an excerpt below and register for free at Goodreads to follow Jeffrey, read his blog, and write your own review of A Call to China.
I’ve decided to begin this blog because I wrote a novel, A Call to China, which was published ten months ago by IngramElliott Press. Since then I have received many responses and reviews (currently 28 on Amazon and 15 on Goodreads), and many personal communications, email and postal, and at book signings and book club discussions I have attended. These have touched on some of the main issues raised in the novel: religion in general, and specifically in contemporary China; sectarian groups in China, religious experience, pilgrimage, mediums and spirit writing; the position of women in society, both in China and America, explorations of different understandings of the meaning of “family” today; history and myth; politics and the individual.
