covered in her book She was a white woman living in what was virtually a compound with a doctor for a father So I am cognizant of the fact that this is a skewed viewpoint However, it sinformation than I had known previously, and I appreciate this step in my global knowledge.One of my favorite parts of this book is its interactive nature There are a lot of photographs included, as well as the authors drawings of different aspects of life And my favorite part the links to audio clips on the website Claire put a lot of time into recording her story before writing it down, and throughout the book there are indications to the reader that there are specific clips available online that enhance the section they re reading I love interacting with oral histories, so this was a definite highlight of my reading experience.As someone who struggled to find any interest in history class in school, this is exactly the type of connection I need When history becomes personal, when the narrator is relatable, and I can find a connection to the content, I want to read and learnAnd Claire s writing did that for me Listening to her voice on the website made it evenpowerful I d recommend this book to anyone interested in being fully immersed in one woman s Chinese experience during a time of great transition for the country This is a fascinating book from which I learned a bit of what it was like to live in China during the first half of the 20th century China in Another Time A Personal Story is the memoir of Claire Malcolm Lintilhac She was the daughter of Canadian missionaries

This made the book come alive evenfor me I found the description of women s foot binding, long nails, and plucked bangs intriguing We see how women were repressed by men Not a new concept at all Same old thing, but different in China during the 1900 s Claire shares descriptions of living behind walls, rickshaws, water purification, routines of their homes, nursing, delivering babies, and the communist takeover Favorite quote When you bind the feet of a nation s women for so many centuries, you bindthan their feet And when you release those feet, you releasethan just feet Perfect quote for National Women s Month, right Claire was an example of a selfless woman who lived to serve others She was a valuable asset and friend to the people she helped during her life I am deeply touched by her story NUGGET GAINED The ultimate principle of life is love Big thanks to Suzy Approved Book Tours for my gifted copy and stop on this enlightening tour Claire Malcolm Lintilhac, author of China In

memoir Claire s father was a Canadian physician and seemed to be a big influence on Claire s life Claire decided to be a nurse and often would travel in China to see patients Claire was born in 1899 and basically lived through much of the history in China Claire spoke both English and Chinese.In this book are many pictures, that Claire had taken over time, which helps document what Claire is telling us Claire was well aware that the water had to be boiled, and any instruments had to be sterilized There was a big difference between North China and Southern China In one area, the people ate rice and the other noodles.Claire s father had a radio and was able to get some news and later transmit news, which turned out to be advantageous I find it absolutely astonishing that Claire lived through the Boxer Rebellion, other wars, and was able to recount when Japan attached China It is also quite remarkable that Claire continued to work and help the people, during dangerous times She was courageous, brave and committed to her goals.Claire did marry an English businessman, and they had a son At one point, Claire had gotten sick When the Communists walked into China in 1949, Claire and her family were lucky to find a way to leave China I would highly recommend this amazing memoir for readers who enjoy History I m a big history buff so this book caught my interest China in Another

the North She was called a tramp nurse She was a nurse for 17 years before marrying in July 1936.She never went to college and only had brief training as a nurse She kept family documents, diaries, correspondence, to create a personal chronicle of the family She then sat down with a reel to reel tape recorder in order to recount a chronological oral history She then assembled these stories into written drafts that also included her own drawings to begin this book There is not a word of fiction, just an authentic view of China in the early 20th Century She loved this period in time but it has been lost and basically edited out of history.On March 12, 1940 Claire and Lin were shocked when she gave birth to baby Philip which surprised them both since she was scheduled to have a cesarean.She left Shanghai in 1950 Up until then, China was home to her husband Francis Eugene Lin Lintilhac and her Both of their families were born there.The family was living in Putney Heath, London when Lin
