Galloping and Hurdles
About the Book
Hua grew up in a small town by the Yangtze River in Central China as the only child of an intellectual father and a feisty mother. As China opened itself up to the rest of the world in the 1990’s, Hua at the age of nineteen left China to embark on an extraordinary journey that took her to four countries in two decades.
This book tells a fascinating story about Hua who studied in Switzerland; fell in love with an abusive man ten years her senior; rescued by an English gentleman who later became Hua’s husband; moved to England alone and re-discovered her identity in this foreign country; established a successful career by working for some of the biggest multinational companies in the world; and moved back to Asia with her family and weathered unprecedented change. Hua candidly recounts some of her most personal moments of struggling with cultural conflicts, losing self-identity, dealing with failures and rebuilding resilience.
This is a book of self-discovery, self-reflection and self-improvement. It will resonate with people who are pursuing their dreams and inspire them to unleash their full potential.
