In the spring of 1989, Chai Ling - a young, idealistic college student in Beijing - found herself leading one of the greatest uprisings in history...until it turned into one of history's most horrifying massacres.

Facing imprisonment and possible death at the hands of the Chinese authorities, Chai Ling went deep underground - eventually hiding in a cargo box for five days to escape to safety in the United States. Though haunted by her past, Ling threw herself into pursuing the American dream, completing Ivy League degrees, finding love, and becoming a highly successful entrepreneur. She was twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Yet her longing for true freedom, purpose, and peace remain unfulfilled. Years after the events at Tiananmen Square, she was still searching to find meaning in all the violence, fear, and tragedy she'd endured.

A Heart for Freedom is a tale of passion, political furor, and spiritual awakening. An inside look at China, then and now. A love song to a now forbidden country. And the inspirational true story of a woman who has dedicated everything to giving people in China their chance at a future.
