I'm reading, on this moment, a very very good book from this extraordinary writer woman, The Angry Wife. The history is about two brothers who had fought on opposig sides on Civil War - 1864 .

She was a genius.

Such an classic and noble American lady !

Two novels i read and never get board to read them over and over and felt i was part or living through the details of the novel , was gone with the wind and the good earth ! But i read them in arabic

Hard to believe her and her family were christians. Most white christians would hate being in a swimming pool with a chinese person, let alone live in their culture and learn their language.

The guy was smoking on the talk show, facing a coughing old lady, what a marvelous time!

"i dont think they (chinese) have to be so human as to produce quite these so many children

If you noticed how Pearl keeps her handbag close to her knees.  This is due to modesty.. which I recall I did due to the short dress which may rise up.  She is so sweet.

I read her stories since I was a young girl.  Loved the story "Good Earth" people should read it because it's got an interesting point of view on family.  In some ways
it may not be to others but to me I was surprised at the ending of the book.  Movie,
they made it more romantic.. despite all that went on.

The birthplace of Pearl S. Buck is in the tiny community of Hillsboro, West Virginia. This is in Pocahontas County, amidst beautiful farm country.
