Beautiful account of Nora, who lived with a Chinese family in the beginning of the 20th century. I am just amazed by the fact that once only 13 tradesmen were allowed to trade with the West. They were apparently fully responsible for the behaviour of their Western trading partners.

Even though I had realised this when living in China, reading this book made me even more aware of the tremendous amount of superstitious beliefs.
