Summary
When all-American Aminta Arrington moves from suburban Georgia to a small town in China, she doesn't go alone. Her army husband and three young children, including an adopted Chinese daughter, uproot themselves too. Aminta hopes they will grow to understand the country with its long civilization, ancient philosophy, and complex language. In Tai'an, a small city where pigs' hooves are available at the local supermarket, donkeys share the road with cars, and the warm-hearted locals welcome this strange looking foreign family, the family is bewildered by the seemingly endless cultural differences they face, but with the help of new friends, they find their way
