Redbud Corner - Book 1 of the Distant Shores Series
Ah Ni (aka Annie) has left China for the first time to study in the quaint little town of Redbud Corner. An only child of a widowed mother, this opportunity to study in America is her one chance at being a success. She quickly settles in and makes friends with a cantankerous elderly neighbor and a lonely little girl. But things really get interesting when a Christian man takes an interest in her.
