For St Patrick’s Day

Coming all the way from Manchuria in 1935 is Marion Young’s Irish spirit of adventure and fun, and of course a good story!


Letters from Manchuria

The story of Marion Young, Missionary in Japanese-occupied China

edited by Neil T. Sinclair


Marion’s writing is lyrical without ever being pretentious and her sense of humour shines through, as does her delight when she was able to use a little Irish blarney, sometimes to get out of extremely risky situations.


Her story is full of suspense as well. The period of Japanese occupation was precarious for everyone and then with the start of the Second World War the dangers for Westerners living in China escalated tenfold.

This hardback book is a fascinating read and worth taking a look at. Want to know more? Click on Letters from Manchuria
