Margot Livesey recommends
Heaven Lake, a novel by John Dalton: “In this immaculately written first novel, Dalton follows a young American, Vincent, who goes to Taiwan as a Christian missionary and ends up making an epic journey to mainland China.
Heaven Lake is large in scope, vivid in character, and beautifully plotted.” (Scribner)
