A riveting epic novel set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century America, an era when the country was beginning to take its place on the world’s stage. Blending fiction and history, the story begins in China in 1900 on the eve of the Boxer Rebellion and then takes the reader on a heart-pounding escape from Peking and across the pirate-infested high seas to California, and then on to Palm Springs, an area still reeling from the impact of its on-going great drought. At the heart of this dazzling story is a marriage, the union of two Americans living in Peking, the beautiful, charming Shannon, a mere seventeen, and her unwavering Marine husband, Clay. The reader is swept away by their multi-faceted love story, the shadow that has fallen across it, and the events they face together as they are reluctantly forced to flee China, embark on the dangerous voyage back to America, and try to make a new life for themselves in the frustrating, parched and inhospitable environment of Palm Springs, California. The grand sweep of this stunning, visual novel is compelling. Gateway to Everywhere will envelop you in all the elements that give a reader insight into another time and place.
