By the Bridge of a Thousand Ages - Myrth Bartlett Oddly paced but moderately interesting story of a poor laboring class boy who is stolen from his family by a childless general. About two thirds of the book is fairly slow, with lots of description of the boy's education and info about Chinese culture(s) and bits of Christian and political message thrown in. Then suddenly it becomes very active with kidnappings and fights and desperate escapes. Kind of odd. Not bad, but I can see why it isn't well known.
