Pearl S. Buck was one of my favorite authors oh so many years ago. THE GOOD EARTH was a novel I reread many times. I loved the characters, the Chinese family and the magical writing style.

A Nobel Prize winner, Pearl Buck was the daughter of missionaries and China became the inspiration for her books. Her work experienced a resurgence (Thankyou Oprah..) in 2004 when The Good Earth was an Oprah Book Club choice. 

A few years ago Buck's son, Edgar Walsh, who manages Buck's estate received an email with unexpected news; a 44th novel by his mother had been found in a storage bin located in Texas. She was 79 when she wrote it and was dying, but had completed over 300 pages.

The family made the decision to publish the novel and THE ETERNAL WONDER has just been released.

I look forward to reading it....

By Pearl S. Buck

A recently discovered novel written by Pearl S. Buck at the end of her life in 1973, The Eternal Wonder tells the coming-of-age story of Randolph Colfax (Rann for short), an extraordinarily gifted young man whose search for meaning and purpose leads him to New York, England, Paris, on a mission patrolling the DMZ in Korea that will change his life forever—and, ultimately, to love.  (
