In this vivid and transparent memoir, Susan takes us on a fascinating journey into the streets and homes of modern China. The travel memoir is interspersed with Susan's personal story of emotional and spiritual sabotage and shame. To run away from scandal, she moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to teach school in China. At first, the adventure of experiencing an exotic culture brought the escape she craved. Gradually, as the layers of mystery and reserve fell away, she came to know her Chinese friends on deeper levels and learned how the Chinese people have had to deal with their own painful past. In that unlikely place, Susan experienced God's love - the most scandalous love of all!

From the FOREWORD:
"Your heart will be warmed, afflicted and enticed as you journey across the great Pacific between Asia and America in a catharsis of tragedy and torment. This is a real story of betrayal and devastation. Some of it sizzles and shakes, but the intention is for healing - perhaps yours." ~ David Spaite

About the Author

Though Scandalon is Susan Jenkins' first book, she has been writing all her life. Being raised the daughter of an imaginative, storytelling mother who loved books, she learned early on the joy of words. Her favorite childhood toy was an old, heavy, black typewriter that she lugged everywhere - creating stories to share with my classmates at school. Ms. Jenkins also loves teaching, traveling, cooking, and being with family and friends.
