5.0 out of 5 stars A truthful and impartial historical account
By Carrie on 25 June 2022
With hindsight, ex-governor Lord Chris Patten revisits his custodianship of Hong Kong in this genuine recollection of his encounters with the Communist regime.

The honest opinion of his observations over the Hong Kong populace is carefully crafted and one could be easily moved by his love towards the Pearl of the Orient after reading.

Highly recommended as Hong Kong’s freedoms are being encroached at this very moment.
