Stories told by Kai and Xia with Perspective by Katherine Puckett

From lucky to unlucky, and finding the gratitude within.

Summary: Kai is from the US and Xia was born and raised in China. They met while he was teaching English literature at a university in China and have been married for more than ten years. Their journey is one of learning how relationship is done across different cultures. When Kai is given a life-threatening diagnosis, Xia feels her “luck” has run out.
