Full Circle is the story of a life transformed by long exposure to the people and culture of China and East Asia. Ruth Hayhoe left Toronto at the age of twenty-one in 1967 and moved to Hong Kong, where she started her career in an Anglo-Chinese secondary school for girls. Intending to stay six months, she spent eleven years there, teaching, studying, assisting a number of veteran China missionaries, and ultimately falling in love with Chinese people and Chinese culture.The stories of numerous individuals in Hong Kong, China, and Japan are interwoven into this narrative account, as Hayhoe shares what it was like to live through a series of major transitions - from the Cultural Revolution of 1967, to Hong Kong's return to China in 1997.
