Yes, I'm revisiting China again (in books)...

Today I read this: in the mid fifth century, a southern official offered 1,000 bolts of cloth to redeem his sexagenarian wife who had been captured and made into a palace slave.

(From Cambridge Illustrated History of China by Patricia Buckley Ebury).

I must say, of all the writers I know, your research seems to be the most thorough and some of the most interesting. I like trying to figure out what you're writing about based on the research you tell us about. Happy reading!

*grins* Thanks Sue. The end is in sight now, I think - just a few more months...

I've never written like this before and I love it.
