Letter from Peking is a tender and suspenseful story of love in a world split apart, love struggling against the barriers of race, politics, distance, and misunderstanding.

The time is today, the setting Vermont with flashbacks to China. The protagonist, is an American woman whose husband Gerald - half Chinese has elected to stay in Peking under communism while she returns to live in America.

A counterpoint to their continuing love is the search of their quarter chinese son, Rennie, who has just reached manhood, for a love that will yield him happiness instead of the frustration his parents have reaped. Around them move the others who make up their world: Gerald's father, a Scotsman from Virginia who began it all by marrying a Chinese wife and for whom Elizabeth is now caring in his last years; the good Chinese woman.
