The Red Thread Eleanor Liu read online review & book description:

The red string of fate, or the red thread of destiny is an East Asian belief originating in Chinese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of those who are destined to marry each other. The deity in charge of gthe red threadh is believed to be Yue Xia Lao (V) the old lunar matchmaker god in charge of marriages.

The two connected are destined lovers, regardless of time, place or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.

This book recounts events and circumstances that shaped and determined the course of Eleanorfs life. Her childhood in a loving family, church, schooling, scouting, camping and friendships were all important. Her marriage to a Chinese man in 1950 was unusual in the South. Their work, studies, family, trips with anecdotes of people and places are included. Descriptions of China since 1973 recount the many changes she has witnessed and give a unique perspective.
