The Willow Tree, Blurb for back cover "Aren`t you afraid to take your children out there?" asked her mother`s friend. "Out there" was China. But Peggy Randall`s parents were not afraid, and her childhood was then divided between China and Canada in the time between the two World Wars. Yes, life in China could be adventurous. At one time Peggy helped her mother look after refugees when the armies of two hostile war lords approached a nearby town. But there were the Chinese friends and their festivals, the lively little school, the summers at the ocean! Finally, when the time came to return to Canada, Peggy was both glad and sorry.
