After a year in Hong Kong, the whole of mainland China, with the exception of the province of Tibet, was liberated by the Communists, and the Kuomintang headed by Chiang Kai-shek fled to Taiwan. By this time a conviction had been well established in their minds. Preparations were made to leave Frances Wong's two children with her parents and her and her husband resigned from their teaching posts. The trains between Hong Kong and Guangzhou had stopped and in going to Guangzhou they had to walk for a week. This chapter describes their life and journey through Beijing where Wong worked under her role model Gong Peng, a visit from the in-laws, political movements, a broken heart, the Princess Kashmir incident, anti-rightist movement.

Keywords:   Hong Kong, China, Communists, Kuomintang, Frances Wong, Guangzhou, Beijing, Gong Peng, Princess Kashmir incident, anti-rightist movement
