In this vivid and transparent memoir, Susan takes us on a fascinating journey into the streets and homes of modern China. The travel memoir is interspersed with Susan's personal story of emotional and spiritual sabotage and shame. Running away from scandal, she left the San Francisco Bay Area to teach school in China. At first, the adventure of an exotic culture brought the escape she craved. Gradually, as the layers of mystery and reserve fell away, she came to know her new Chinese friends on deeper levels and learned how the Chinese people themselves have had to deal with their own painful past. In that unlikely place, Susan experienced God's healing love - the most scandalous love of all!

From the Foreword:
"Your heart will be warmed, afflicted and enticed as you journey across the great Pacific between Asia and America in a catharsis of tragedy and torment. This is a real story of betrayal and devastation. Some of it sizzles and shakes, but the intention is for healing - perhaps yours." ~David Spaite


"Scandalon is rich in its account of pain and triumph, confusion and clarity.... An enthralling story that touches the very depth of the heart.... May God use Ms. Jenkins' personal journey of character; heart and soul to reach and restore, revive and rescue, resolve and repair, replenish and release, renew and revitalize-- its readers into the next phase of their life's journey." ~Dr. Anita McLaughlin, Independent Voices

"With disarming vulnerability Susan Elaine Jenkins unfolds a personal memoir spanning fifteen years and two continents. While teaching school in Mainland China she reflects on the most important relationships of her life: with her father, her husband and her pastor. She unfolds a compelling spiritual passage traveling beyond despair to deliverance which can encourage any reader to soulfully reflect on the greatest relationship of all, one with Jesus Christ. Jenkins captivates the reader with cultural insights and candid appraisal of life as an American expatriate in modern day China while alternately chronicling her exploitation by a person in a position of trust. From the darkness of sin a story of courage and victory is penned." ~David Krome, Tamar's Voice
