His father’s persevering study of the small library of books on India which they had brought along had moved him at times to secret shame and so to mild teasing. But he could not fix his mind on reading.

His father’s persevering study of the small library of books on India which they had brought along had moved him at times to secret shame and so to mild teasing. His mother’s death had left him in apathy.

Come and sit on my lap, Sara, he said, ignoring Livy. I will tell you more about America. The little girl loosened her clutch upon her sister’s waist, and diverted by the invitation, she went to her father. In the darkness, lit only by the glow falling through the open doors and windows as servants went about lighting the lamps in the house, he told her about America, the endless mountains and the long rivers, the great cities and the house where her grandfather lived, and before that her great-grandfather, whom she had never seen, who now was dead

Plague, the dreadful companion of famine, almost certain death, to reach for his beloved! . Someone had already run across the compound and told the Christians that death had come and they lifted their voices in the Christian hymn, Nearer, my God, to Thee

Plague, the dreadful companion of famine, almost certain death, to reach for his beloved! What shall I do? he cried. There is nothing to do, alas, the doctor said. Someone had already run across the compound and told the Christians that death had come and they lifted their voices in the Christian hymn, Nearer, my God, to Thee. It was foreign music to them, the tune was uncertain, and suddenly it was drowned in a wild wailing throughout the compound. Every servant and every neighbor was crying aloud until the instinctive human sorrow of India, always brimming and ready to run over, broke into the old music of the centuries.

Come along to my study, my dear boy. You’ll find me in a fog of confusion. The dying smell of old leather-bound books and the mildly acid taint of printer’s ink mingled with the scent of an immense bowl of roses on a table under the window. My wife’s contribution to the day’s work, Dr. Barton said when he saw David’s eyes straying again and again to the roses. They make me think of my mother, he said. Ah, we miss her, Dr. Barton replied, with emotion that just escaped being unctuous.

I will come because of my father. He put out his right arm to his father, who clung to it and hoisted himself thus from the sofa and they went away after their farewells for the night, the father still leaning upon the son. In the drawing room David turned to put out the lamp when Ted spoke.

Era
Covers three generations of a well-off American family as the son decides to become a missionary. Had some behaviors and attitudes that made me cringe a little, but were perfectly accurate to the time in which it took place in. Still a lovely and interesting read. I feel like I'm so much more in love with her novels about China that I may be biased here (this one is about India). That said, Buck's prose feels like poetry at times, she has such a way of words, and this one is no exception. There's an almost lyrical flow to it sometimes, but it never feels like she's trying to hard, it's just in the way her words pull you along with the story. If someone who had never read her asked me to recommend one of her books, this might not be particularly high on my list, but it's definitely still worth a read for fans of Buck or of India.
The Rollers of Vildar
Read this only if you’re into politics, and only if you’re interested in the politics of India, trying to win its independence from Great Britain. Unlike Ms. Buck’’s other books, the characterization is very poor, 4 generations of a basically American family whom we only shallowly know. They cannot figure out if they should be missionaries in India, and if so, Christian or Hindu missionaries, depicting a Hindu Christ figure. Gandhi figures quite prominently in the story, and whether or not his Martin Luther King’s policies of non-violence should be followed to improve the horrible poverty that is India.

Way way way way way too political for my tastes, especially since it is the politics of India between the two World Wars.

Pearl S Buck is one of my favorite authors. She has an ability to cover generational history and families, and normally I like that but this time it seemed I didn't get enough of one generation before she went to the next. I was moved by the protagonist's sad life and wished something better for her. It left me sad because I really liked her.
Dammy
This book, which the 1938 Nobel Literature Prize Winner dedicates to India dwells in a subject that though written decades ago has validity in the XXIst Century, that of diversity and equality.
The author suggests that true equality, though tightly embraced can falter when confronted on a personal level and put to a personal test - at the family level. The message is driven stronger to the reader's social consciousness through an almost absence of her usual narrative poetry.
This is an author that should be read by all aspiring literary writers. The differences and subtleties of both narrative prose and narrative poetry are worth learning.
Ieregr
I probably won't read it again. There are books of Pearl Buck's that I like better. But it was worth exploring the problems of its time and place. No way it could have had a happy ending, but then, that's life sometimes.
Realistic
Everyone should read Peal S. Bucks books
GoodLike

Love all of Pearl Buck books
