Von Joan E Doble - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A young, British man filled with ambition, Luke Trewarne, journeys thousands of miles from home to China to make a future in trading for himself. Dan Gemmell called upon the expertise of Luke to help to save his failing trading company in Canton, a city up the Pearl River from Hong Kong. Luke relies on a Hoklos, water gypsies, for his transportation through the heavily guarded Chinese waters to Canton. Luke, being British, must not be seen by Chinese soldiers due to the high tensions over opium trade during the early to mid 1800s. On board the small vessel, Luke is attracted to Kuei, the Hoklo girl, who pilots the boat up river. At first, Kuei resents Luke because of the opium that he gave to her father in exchange for passage aboard his boat. By the end of the short voyage, Kuei begins to feel the same way that Luke feels towards her. Before anything serious begins, the voyage is over and they say goodbye for what could be forever.
In Canton, Luke works diligently to turn the Gemmell Company around. Dan Gemmell is not able to aide Luke very much because he is sick in the missionary hospital run by Abel Snow, an American missionary. As a christian man with good values, Gemmell has never traded in the highly profitable opium. In this matter, Luke and Dan Gemmell see eye to eye. With his experience trading in India, Luke is able to remarkably turn the Gemmell Company into an overnight success all without opium trade. Unfortunately, Dan Gemmell passed away leaving his company in Luke’s hands to prosper. Now with full ownership of the Gemmell Company, Luke becomes a wealthy man who is well known up and down the banks of the Pearl River. The opium traders of the region do not join in singing Luke’s praise. Although, they respect the success that Luke has achieved, they despise him for going against opium trade. Ezra McCulloch, one of the wealthiest men in the region dictating an opium empire, respects Luke as a businessman, but is constantly on Luke’s case about defying him and other traders.
In Canton, Luke enjoys life. He has met a couple of friends who support his trading methods. Luke finds himself spending many hours in the Gemmell Company warehouse. Suddenly, one day, Luke is surprised to find Kuei in Canton. Their love for each other hits full swing as they spend many nights together. For this, Luke was criticized by Chinese and European gawkers alike, to whom always seemed to have a window into Luke’s private life. Things between Luke and Kuei begin to cool down as Luke is mistaken for the cause of a fire in Canton, while he is really trying to save women and children. This lands him in a Canton prison where he endures the worst couple of days of his life. Kuei comes to his rescue after calling upon the help of the well respected Tartar general, Shengan, who is the uncle of her best friend, Ezra McCulloch's mistress, Lo Asan. During his time of recovery, Luke becomes good friends with Shengan, who also despises opium trade.
As Luke keeps acquiring wealth, he builds a house next to Ezra McCulloch's in Hong Kong. Still in love with Kuei, Luke leaves the house under her control during his business travels. While away, Luke meets Morna McCulloch, who is the daughter of Ezra. The two have the same view of opium trade. Negotiations between the United Kingdom and China deteriorate as the arrogant opium traders refuse to respect Chinese law. Through his friendship with Shengan, Luke becomes a peacemaker between the two nations. He gains respect from both peoples alike who do not want war. During the periods of turmoil, Luke returns regularly to Hong Kong to spend time with his now wife, Kuei Trewarne. Luke leaves to travel with the British fleet as an interpreter and negotiator just as Kuei announces that she is pregnant.
Open the pages of this novel and enjoy a story of love and the war that opened the doors of China to outside influence. Travel along with Luke Trewarne as he attempts to stop the sure slaughter that the people of China will face, coming face to face with one of the premier military forces of the world. The reader will surely enjoy this fiction novel based upon one of the most tumultuous times in Chinese history, the Opium Wars.
