PDF Peking Picnic: PDF

by Ann Bridge

"In her experience all the richest and most valuable things were mixed up, somehow or other, with being hurt...Happiness was the flaunting honeyed flower of the soul; but the root was pain, and the twin fruits knowledge and strength."

Though war-lords skirmish in the countryside, formal diplomatic life proceeds in the fabled city of Peking. At its centre is Laura Leroy, an attache's wife, "admired, valued and a little feared", though privately grieving for her children and for England. When a group embarks on a camping trip to a great temple, the breathtaking scenery provides a perfect backdrop for romance and, while offering wise and tactful advice to the young lovers in her midst, Laura finds her own heart touched by a lonely visitor, But all such contemplations must be cast aside when a group of bandits takes the party hostage and violence erupts...
