Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling trilogy, A House Divided is a rich and unforgettable portrait of a family - and a nation - in transition.

A perfect ending

A House Divided tells a more personal story than its predecessors, yet still expands the scope of the story. It continues the beautifully minimalist style of writing, and brings a perfect, satisfying end to the trilogy.

The narration by Verner is delightful and brings the story and characters to life.

the son the power

great story that follows generation in China. The role and duty towards a parent is clearly highlighted and the reason for wanting a son is clearly visible good and bad.
