The story of two women from worlds that could not seem farther apart - imperial China and the American Midwest - who found common ground before and after one of the greatest clashes between East and West, the fifty-five-day siege of the Beijing foreign legations known as the Boxer Uprising. Using diaries, letters and untapped sources, The Empress and Mrs. Conger traces the parallel lives of the Empress Dowager Cixi and American diplomat?s wife Sarah Pike Conger, which converged to alter their perspectives of each other and each other's worlds.
