Between Darkness and Light

“Of all the imaginings of those times, this is a tale that stands out. There is nothing else quite like this.” T. H. Barrett, Professor Emeritus of East Asian History, SOAS

“Between Darkness and Light is a tragic epic set in a historical period that continues to haunt relationships between China and the western world. … With keen eye for historical and cultural detail, Peachey takes his readers on a sad odyssey across China and around the world, ending in a no-man’s land where Weijun finds the fate that was foreshadowed from the start — but with a surprising, humane twist.” Michel Hockx, Professor of Chinese Literature, University of Notre Dame, USA

A “compelling and audacious novel” – Martin Alexander, Editor-in-Chief, Asia Literary Review

50 Books for Life

“It not only introduces the reader to the classical works of Catholic literature but is itself a literary treasure. It deserves a place on the bookshelf in the living room of every Catholic family.” Tracey Rowland, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame, Australia

“This book is an indispensable guide for frustrated readers bored with trite literary fluff, and, perhaps most especially, those seeking paths towards the half-forgotten springs of life.” Brian Sudlow, Aston University

“This book is a real gem. Succinct yet full of depth and sound literary judgment, it is a wonderfully accessible guide to many of the finest works of Christendom.” Joseph Pearce, author of Literature: What Every Catholic Should Know

A “sparkling and erudite little volume” – Francis Phillips, Catholic Herald
