An Afternoon with Jeffrey Meyer

Join local writer Jeffrey Meyer at Main Street Books for a discussion of his new novel, A Call to China.

A Call to China interweaves the tales of Victoria and Olivia. Victoria, a child of American missionaries, disappears at a Beijing festival in 1940 and is never seen again. Although devastated, Victoria's parents continue their missionary work in China, eventually producing a second child.

Years later, the story continues as two sisters, raised in two different cultures, begin a search for identity and family. Set against the background of revolutionary change in 20th century China and America, China-born and American-raised Olivia hears her “call to China” and embarks on her own mission through the exotic country to find the sister she never knew.
