A gripping tale of hardships, resilience, and passion, A Heart To Survive not only explores the depth of human passions but drives home the bitter realities of racism in 1950s Canada.
It tells the story of fourteen-year-old Tao Wen Shun, the upstanding son of an educated Chinese family, forced to leave his home country for Canada to escape the terrors of Mao’s regime.
As a foreigner in a country whose people, language, and culture he doesn’t know or understand, Wen Shun must decide how he will navigate the treacherous waters of this new land’s racial disparities.
A superb piece of storytelling, A Heart To Survive takes readers on an epic journey into the historical past of two nations divided by culture and continents.
