    Om Lessons from China

    Jan Cross, a recent graduate from the University of Mississippi, is on a plane headed for Beijing, China to teach English at a Chinese university. Struggling to free herself of her ultra-independent behavior, she intentionally places herself in a situation that forces her to depend on others for help. Jan gets much more than she bargained for as she experiences a culture that is worlds apart from her beloved southern town of Jasper, Mississippi, USA. Jan quickly learns that as a visitor and an employee, you don't mess with the Chinese government or the University! The challenges of living and working abroad change her forever as she gives and receives lessons inside and outside of the classroom on life, social practices, politics, and the deep bond of friendship. Lessons from China is a heartwarming exploration of China that innocently, and often humorously, takes into account the many differences and similarities to US culture through the eyes of a young American and first-time traveler. Providing an inside view of Chinese culture, economic development, and bits of historical background, this story delivers the hope and beauty of diversity and cultural acceptance between East and West.
