    The conclusion to Buck’s celebrated Good Earth trilogy: the story of a man’s return to a homeland embroiled in revolution

    On the eve of a popular rebellion, the Chinese government starts to crack down in cities across the country. Fleeing the turmoil, Wang Yuan, the son of a famous general and grandson of the patriarch of The Good Earth, leaves for America to study agriculture. When he returns to China six years later, he encounters a nation still in the grip of violent uprisings. Unprepared for the social upheaval, Wang is torn by the tensions between old traditions and new ways, and by his formidable family, whose struggles he hopes to solve. A reflective finale to Buck’s groundbreaking and bestselling trilogy, A House Divided is a rich and unforgettable portrait of a family—and a nation—in transition. 

    This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate.

  • “[Buck] did for the working people of twentieth-century China something of what Dickens had done for London’s nineteenth-century poor.”  - Hilary Spurling, author of Pearl Buck in China
