An American in China

"It’s time I chose a direction and the Far East is as good as any," shrugs David Braddock, exactly the kind of aimlessness that has his parents worried about their newly minted college grad. Pressured to travel to Shanghai on behalf of the troubled family business, the party’s over and David is reluctantly thrust into a country strangely unaltered by the modern world. His translator, a beautiful young girl as directed as he is directionless, attempts to help the struggling David. Problem is…no one seems to take him seriously there either! But- despite the language barrier, cultural differences, culinary shock and a near international incident- romance blossoms. David returns a changed man, but the family business is in worse jeopardy than before. Determined, David returns to China to see things through both professionally and personally. Will this fish-out-of-water finally find his way?
