Cocoons of Silk


Just published: Cocoons of Silk: A True Romance from 1930s China

Any reader with a romantic heart and curiosity about life in China during the early 20th century will find this true story fascinating. A Chinese man recalls the tangled love story that wrapped him in cocoons of silk in his youth and caused him to make what we'd call today unwise decisions. A gifted young teacher with a flair for writing music and street dramas during a turbulent time in Chinese history, he rebels against the old-fashioned custom of arranged marriages. But in that era, love matches were scandalous, and those who sent love letters left themselves open to blackmail.

How will he disentangle himself? And how will it change his life forever?  The book is now available here. Check out the reviews on
