Title
The Good Earth
Author
Pearl S. Buck
Review
This is a classic Pulitzer Prize winning novel published in 1931 that tells the story of a Chinese farmer, Wang Lu, and his family's struggles to survive. It graphically depicts the best and worst times of their lives. It is a timeless story that reveals the true character of a man who has experienced deprivation and abundance. This story helped me appreciate the things in life I often take for granted.   Reserve a copy!
