I've known Grace and her husband for many years, and completely trust their accounts of life in China. Some of that confidence stems from my own experiences in China over the last 13 years. If you're interested in the reality of living in this atheistic communist country (unfoundedly fearful of Christianity), rather than politically influenced western romantic speculation, then you need to read "Dragon Ride". Along with the challenging perspectives we're offered through Grace's accounts, we are blessed with her delightfully animated personality, and gifted communication style! Being a typically slow reader myself, I've often taken months to read a single book. Yet I have "sped" through this captivating book in just over one week! (I'm pitiful, right?) Enjoy the "Ride"!
