A Chinese boy named Fu-Lin is badly injured when he falls down a concealed hole into a wolf den. The startled wolves attack and severely injure him, badly disfiguring his face. While in the hospital, Fu-Lin learns about Jesus from Jonathan and Rosiland Goforth, who later give him a job as an errand boy. But with the beginning of the Boxer Rebellion, the Goforths are forced to leave their home and flee south to avoid the Empress Dowager's order to "kill all foreigners." You will be unable to put the book down as the Goforths, with Fu-Lin in tow, attempt to make it to safety alive.
