Hu was born on May 4, 1933, in Shanghai, the eighth of nine children.
She converted to Catholicism and was baptized on April 17, 1949 just six
months prior to China officially becoming Communist. Following her
arrest in 1951, Rose spent the next 26 years in Chinese concentration
camps under Mao Tse-Tung. After her release in 1982, she was able to
tell this story in her own words.
translated for an English audience, this inspirational book is filled with the raw, unfiltered thoughts and experiences of a
soul who endured much for Christ. What Rose suffered for her Catholic faith defies belief and demands the utmost respect, and certainly draws a clear picture
of the treatment of Catholics under Communism in China.
Her story is
highly recommended by Fr. Daniel Couture, SSPX, her spiritual
287 pp. Paperback. Non-fiction.
