Love In An Iron Bowl
Philip Deal, author
Love In An Iron Bowl is a true story. While living in China, the author sets out to meet and interview interesting people in real life situations. He gets far more than he bargained for when he meets a free-spirited Chinese woman who is determined to get what she wants - at any cost. When the two fall in love and begin to travel, often without the blessings of their work unit's authorities, the author's life is turned upside down, and he begins to feel the powerful weight of China's Iron Bowl.

A love story I could not put down. Not a "romance" novel...a love story. Your heart will ache for the young people of China who are told who to love, where to live, & what to do- and also for the older Chinese citizens who live, hands extended, waiting to catch the tiniest breadcrumbs of reward. Your heart will ache for the author, and Anna, a Chinese girl who dares to buck the system. Tense and scary,and light hearted and uplifting. You feel the lovers' exhaustion at the roller coaster relationship in such a restrictive environment. I have read several books on Chinese history and government, but I learned new things in this book. I read this in one day. I just had to find out how it all ended. If you like books like: Mao's Last Dancer, Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, Nothing to Envy, Memoirs of a Geisha, Devil in the White City, Remarkable Creatures, Year of Wonders, and Girl With a Pearl Earring, you will enjoy this book!

I started reading one Saturday morning and read until my eyes were too tired to keep going. I got up the next day and was compelled to finish. I laughed, I cried, I was afraid, my heart felt heavy, my heart felt full. I identified with their struggle and was moved. The inside look into China and Chinese life was intriguing. I think this is a story both men and women will enjoy.
