Mary Linley Taylor was not a woman to be hidebound by convention. She was offered leading parts in a theatrical company that was to tour India and the Far East. In Japan she met an American gold mining engineer and married him in India. He managed a gold mine in Korea. May spent most of her married life in that mysterious country. Korea between the wars was under Japanese rule; its ancient culture, its elaborate customs even then under threat. Mary gives birth to her child while copies of an illegal Declaration of Independence are hastily hidden from the Japanese beneath her bedclothes. The Korean Emperor's funeral leads to riots and slaughter. White Russian refugees from Vladivostok appear in a warship of the Imperial Russian Navy, pleading for sanctuary from the Bolsheviks and Mary has her last Korean adventure when she tries to bury her husband's ashes next to his father.

Each "bead" of adventure is strung on a "chain" that is the wonderful character of the author herself, courageous, warm-hearted, open-minded and with the keen observation of the artist.
