Perhaps it's not as compelling as Heloise and Abelard ,
but here's the first love story I've ever written
(and it may well be the last).
Hope you enjoy it !
(note: I'm not sure how well this story will read
out of context from the previous 13 chapters.
Our heroine is age 16 at the time,
and her entire high school
has just been sent to the countryside,
to work on a large farm in far northern China,
30 miles from the Russian border)
