Sean Macdonald is a child of his time and place born of an Irish-Chinese mother and Scottish-Canadian father in the British Concession of Tientsin, one of several extraterritorial concessions controlled then by European residents representing the corporate and national interests of their homelands. Peitaiho is a place north of the Tai River in Northern China where Sean spends his summers, surrounded by a loving family, parents, grandparents and playmates of many nations. For a growing boy, it is idyllic: and when the Japanese invade, at first it seems a great adventure. Soon it becomes apparent that everything has changed, forever. This epic tale of family and friendship in war and peace spans the tumultuous period from the Battle of the Somme in 1916 through the Second World War, the Korean War, the Cultural Revolution and the slow reopening of China to the world, connecting and reconnecting the two worlds in Sean's past, in his blood and in his bones, and putting a human face on the turmoil of history.
