Book Details

THE GOOD FOREIGNER historical fiction by Cleo Fellers Kocol

INTRIGUE, LOVE, and PASSION create a spell like a lion dancer weaving through the realities of the Chinese Civil War, the Cultural Revolution, and culminating in a breathtaking sequence of events during the action at TIANANMEN SQUARE. Caught in the historical happenings of the years 1947-1989 are: American World War II veteran, idealist LOGAN WAINWRIGHT and political realist LIN SULIN, the exotic beauty he loves. In order to find her father, Logan’s beautiful and brainy American daughter, CHRISTINE, becomes an expert linguist and translator. She’s loved by JASON, a brilliant young American and WU GANG-JO, a charismatic Chinese. Christine and the others interact with historical figures: PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON, HENRY KISSINGER, MAO, and ZHOU during the pomp and pageantry when the USA leaders flew behind the Bamboo Curtain to open up China to the world. THE GOOD FOREIGNER’S intimate view of actual world-shaking days takes place in both America and China.
