Description

The Blackbird’s Song is the story of conflict between two cultures. Three young Canadian missionaries working in the remote mountains of Honan province in China become tragic victims of the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, in a suspensful tale that explores the fine line between courage and weakness, hope and despair, faith and delusion.
