Daughter of the Yellow River: An Inspirational Journey
When Diana Lu was three years old, her world turned upside down. China's Cultural Revolution was under way, and Diana's family was forced to leave their comfortable, educated, middle-class life in the city. They relocated to an impoverished coal-mining village at the edge of the Gobi Desert, where they were to be "re-educated." Life in that remote place was a constant struggle against hunger, cold, and fear.

I wish I had read this book when I was a young girl. Diana's determination and hard work took her so far in accomplishments, friendships, skills, financial independence and wisdom. I think she is more than a little gifted. She is very special and I see some of her characteristics in my granddaughter. I loved Daughter of the Yellow River also because Diana gave me some insight into to thinking and culture of the Chinese people in a way that I can now feel a closer tie with them. Inspiring is the operative word.
Thank you Diana for your energy and driving motivation to help and inspire others.
What a story. To come so far is amazing. The book details a triumph of the human spirit. Great read.
