Overnight, Ling was named on government’s list of the 21 most wanted students. Ling escaped from Beijing to avoid imprisonment and probable death; ten months later, she secretly boarded a cargo ship and left China for Hong Kong.

Soon, Ling got married and started family yet her longing for true freedom, purpose, and peace remained unfulfilled until she found had found freedom and restoration in Jesus Christ.

Chai Ling’s A Heart of Freedom is an excellent resource for all seekers who search for true meaning and purpose while battling our private fears and regrets.
- “As an Ivy League graduate and Chinese-American male, I had my own preconceptions before reading Chai Ling’s book. I thought I knew everything there was to know about modern Chinese culture. But then I read Ling’s book, and three things happened: I was illuminated about the real situation in China. I was convicted about my own apathy (and even endorsement) of what is happening; Ling’s account opened my eyes to the horror of what a population control policy really means; after all, how could you possibly enforce that policy except by forced abortions and forced sterilizations? I was transformed as I began to see the deep love God has for the Chinese people. If you haven’t yet committed your life to Jesus Christ, I encourage you to read this book and learn how Ling–after all that she endured–came to commit her life to Christ.” – Anonymous, Amazon Review
- “On the positive side, it is possible for someone to read this book and learn enough about God to be converted. Ling’s honest testimony of struggle, of learning about God and the truth about her own sin and helplessness over the period of several months is no simple reciting of a sinner’s prayer – there was real change involved in her life and I have no doubt that she knows God.” – S. Verstraete, Amazon Review
- “”A Heart for Freedom” is a soul-awakening, life-changing and spirit-uplifting book. Chai Ling’s story is a story of God’s redemption and healing. Chai Ling’s life journey has painted a picture of Christ’s Amazing Grace. I highly recommend this book to all women – Chinese and American, or women of other nationalities, who either has a past abortion, or knows a friend who does. The true freedom and healing Chai Ling has found is also available to all in Jesus Christ.” – Anonymous, Amazon Review
