A young Chinese woman, Zhen-Li--raised to observe the party line, including its one-child-per-family doctrine--falls in love with and marries a Christian, and adopts his faith. Though the couple downplays their Christianity in an effort to survive, Zhen-Li's family is appalled, and she and her husband are ostracized.
It is then Zhen-Li decides she must live up to her name--"Truth"--and take a firm stand for her faith, regardless of the consequences, and so she begins to regularly teach children about Zhu Yesu ("Lord Jesus")
Based loosely on the life of Christian magazine editor Li Ying, currently serving a ten-year prison sentence in China, the story of Yang Zhen-Li tells the desperate tale of her incarceration and separation from her family, as she continues to minister to other prisoners, and even to her guards.
This book takes place inside the River Valley nursing home, inside a terrible prison in China, and with a young girl being led into being a sex slave. This booked lived up to Extreme Devotion. It was interesting to how the power of prayer was working in all of these lives.
I would highly recommend this book, once you start reading it is hard to put down.
