Journal Entry 1 by wingAnnimanniwing from Espoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Saturday, June 16, 2012
From the back:

"When the tanks rolled into Tiananmen Square, Diane Wei Liang was one of the thousands of students at Beijing University who had been involved in the peaceful demonstrations. The dramatic events of that day, 4 June 1989, ended dreams of a better life, of democracy and freedom - and of love. Diane and her sweetheart Dong Yi were forced to flee Beijing and did not see each other again. Seven years later she returned to China to look for him...

Lake With No Name is Diane's eyewitness account of that traumatic period. It is both a personal journey and love story and a political testimony which takes us from the Cultural Revolution to a defining moment in China's recent history."

The book is here, thank you!!

** EDIT 8.2.18: gave up on this somewhere around page 70. Somehow it was difficult to get into the story & the exhaustingly mushy love scene was too much for me... just not my kind of a book despite the interesting China-theme.

China is so not my country, but I decided to give the book a chance to travel.

Pic: First though of this place, but the book ended up under the statue (see next JE).
