Nobel winner Pearl S. Buck's classic debut novel, about one Chinese woman's coming of age as she's torn between Eastern and Western cultures

Kwei-lan is a traditional Chinese girl—taught by her mother to submit in all things, "as a flower submits to sun and rain alike." Her marriage was arranged before she was born. As she approaches her wedding day, she's surprised by one aspect of her anticipated life: Her husband-to-be has been educated abroad and follows many Western ideas that Kwei-lan was raised to reject. When circumstances push the couple out of the family home, Kwei-lan finds her assumptions about tradition and modernity tested even further.

East Wind: West Wind is a sensitive, early exploration of the cross-cultural themes that went on to become a hallmark of Buck's acclaimed novels.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author's estate.
