WELCOME TO OUR REALLY ENOUGH BLOG
Hello and welcome to our Really Enough Blog. We created this blog as a place to engage you, our reader, in interesting dialogues about the book, the times, the themes and the stories behind the scenes in the life of Margaret Zhao.
Margaret’s journey was so unique, having taken place in a remote location in a tumultuous time that was virtually hidden from the rest of the world for decades. Spanning the tyrannical years from the regime of Chairman Mao beginning in 1949 to the 1990’s as an immigrant in America, Margaret’s story offers revealing insights, a breadth of themes and a depth of life lessons we want to share and discuss with you.
What better way to get the answers to those dangling questions that lingered after you read the last page than through the authors’ blog… and who better to ask about the book and the life you have spent so much time reading about, than the authors themselves. We are neither historians nor politicians, but when it comes to the life of one young girl’s struggle for freedom and forbidden love, or the creation of the book that tells her story–we have an expert in the house!
Both Margaret and I will be posting on our blog, together or as individuals. Thank you for your support–the reviews have been overwhelming! We are grateful to have this blog to continue to reach for our goal of using Really Enough to inform, entertain and inspire the lives of our readers.
Question of the day–How did Really Enough impact your thinking? decisions? Life? Send your answer to us in the Comments window below.
We hope you will join us here often, send us your questions and join our Reader’s Circle. We are even planning to break the barrier and leap out of our book and into the living rooms of a few of our readers to Skype a Q & A with them.
Our first Book Club Skype is in the home of Judy Rough who is graciously hosting a “One—Time Book Club” meeting in Denver at the end of this month. What a wonderful idea she came up with for people who do not have an on-going book club to engage in lively discussion and have a social evening centered around Really Enough. To show our appreciation we offered to cap it off with a Skype visit from the authors. We look forward to it.
Regarding the book–what dangling question has lingered for you? You can post your questions for us in the comment area below this post. We will randomly choose a question to answer in each blog post. All questions and submissions will become the property of Really Enough and may be used in our Really Enough Official Reader’s Guide. Of course, we will give you the credit using the name you use to sign the email message you send us. If you wish to be anonymous, please tell us!
Writing this book meant the fulfillment of a personal goal that each of the authors had for years. It is truly never too late. Here is a personal question to think about:
What unlikely dream has been simmering around in your brain for years? Is it time to act?
Make it Really Enough,
Margaret Zhao and Kathleen Martens
