City of Tranquil Light by Bo Caldwell

This was inspired by the author's missionary parents. It takes place in China during the early-mid 1900s. It's told from the perspective of a couple, each taking turns to narrate their life.

I had read a book by this author called The Distant Land of My Father which was why this book caught my eye. I liked this book, mostly because it involved China and early missionaries. It was a pretty thoughtful book, especially as the characters try to make sense of what happens to them and the grief they experience. Overall, I came to the same conclusion as I did with the previous book by the same author: a pretty good read, but not one that I would re-read or buy.
