9789889706142: Shouting at the Mountain: A Hong Kong story of love and commitment

This is the story of a man and a woman born thousands of miles apart, of different nationality, culture and language, who met in Hong Kong in the most unlikely of circumstances, yet were destined for a life together. Both had known hardship and sorrow in youth; both had similar aspirations to study and dedicate their lives to the service of the underprivileged, to struggle against injustice, and to work for world peace. The only barrier between was that one belonged to a nation of colonisers; the other to the colonised. Their task seemed formidable, but together they succeeded in bringing about changes beyond their imagination. Elsie Tu is one of Hong Kong's best-known activists and writers. 'Shouting at the Mountain', completed after her husband Andrew's death in 2001, confirms her as an authentic Hong Kong voice. 'Heartwarming' -- HK Magazine; 'Tu tells her story clearly and directly, without recourse to ornate language or selfcongratulation.' -- South China Morning Post
