Synopsis A Many-Splendored Thing is a book about that post-war Asia shaken from end to end by stupendous, revolutionary changes. ...A vivid feature is the contrast in her brilliant pictures of Hong Kong and China. In their conduct these people--the Christian missionaries and old-school Chinese refugees from China, the enthusiastic young Chinese Communists and serene, imperturbable non-Communist elders inside China, the foreign observers of various types in Hong Kong and, above all, the Eurasian girl, Suyin, and her English lover, Mark -- represent other clashes which disturb Asia today. In the foreground occurs the incident of Suyin's and Mark's love. A tale of one of those perfect unions between a man and woman which is somehow doomed.
