In her stirring new novel, “The Triumphant Life - A Story of Love and Courage” (published by Xlibris), author Jin-Chen Camilla Wang tells the life story of a girl growing up in Taiwan after escaping from the crippling grasp of communist China.
Readers follow Nan, as she and her family fled from Communist China to Taiwan through a perilous journey led by her mother. There, she grew up in a meager yet nurturing environment. After college, she came to Cornell University for graduate studies. Her subsequent experience and close relationships with a group of five all-male fellow graduate students took her through an unexpected path that led to multiple tribulations. She fell in love with one who could only reciprocate her love in his heart but not in his action. She married another, yet their blissful life together was again mercilessly challenged. The brilliance of their minds was not able to protect them from human tragedies. Throughout, diverse social issues and human emotions were exposed and explored.
Spanning more than forty years and over two continents, “The Triumphant Life - A Story of Love and Courage” is a novel set in the historical background of the latter part of the twentieth century. Eloquently written and meticulously crafted, the various story lines are weaved together into one interconnected whole. It is a triumphant account of unrelenting love and friendship.
