Embracing life struggles in order to overcome adversities.

“Heel Print” is a book that tells the story of a young Chinese woman named Yi-qing Dong. She was betrothed to a young man from the village at the tender age of seven. Her parents, being traditional rural Chinese folks, bound her feet (a cultural tradition to ‘beautify the feet’) to please her future husband, despite him beginning to discover the modern values that lies beyond the rural countryside.

Despite being matched without a choice, the union of the couple turned out a great blessing and is a harmonious one. Unfortunately for the couple, the husband died during war, and Yi-qing was left to care for and raise her five children alone on a poverty-stricken land facing physical, financial, political and social challenges. The book continues on to follow her as she struggles with the trials she has to face alone.

“Heel Print” is a truly inspirational book. It takes the readers back to rural China, where cultural traditions are given high priority. The book will enlighten and broaden the minds of the readers about the colorful life of the traditional Chinese life.

“Heel Print” is a must-have to those who are interested in learning the early Chinese traditions.

“Heel Print” will soon be displayed at the upcoming 2017 Hongkong Intl Book Fair, which will be on July 19, 2017. Grab your copy now, save the date and see you there!
