Bo Caldwell’s new novel is a special treat, but especially for anyone with an interest in China. The City of Tranquil Light is the lovely, compelling story of two American missionaries who fall in love with each other when their paths cross while working in early 20th century China. Prize-winning author Ron Rash says the novel ”is a remarkable evocation of another time and place as well as a deeply moving love story.” And Gail Godwin says Caldwell ”has honored her missionary grandparents with her storytelling gifts.” Caldwell’s memoir-like first novel, The Distant Land of My Father, appeared to critical acclaim in 2002. We welcome her for her first visit to the Georgia Center for the Book. (jasbro)
