Took the tour of the newly renovated Pearl S Buck house yesterday. What a fascinating display of how a person can turn a hardship into a legacy. Simply speaking, a daughter of missionaries was raised in China. She matured, married, and gave birth to a special needs child who required residential placement outside of the home. Results of the birth made it impossible for Pearl Buck to give birth again so after a divorce and second marriage she adopted children. From the depths and realities of those life experiences came an award winning and best selling novel, The Good Earth, and an International Adoption Agency.
The property is beautiful both inside and out and our tour guide gave many details about life inside with a slight lean toward how one can contribute and support the foundation. My companion and I were the only ones on the tour on this day which was scheduled to last for an hour and half. Nice gift shop and very nice staff. $12.00 for an adult to enter.
