Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bestselling Chinese American author Adeline Yen Mah weaves her authentic accounts of life in China into an absorbing novel about a Chinese girl and her vision of a previous life.

After a fall, CC is whisked away to a hospital. As she drifts in and out of consciousness, she is haunted by vivid dreams that seem strange—yet somehow familiar. Thus begins CC’s emotional journey back to a privileged life lived eight hundred years ago during the Song dynasty.

CC is the daughter of a wealthy and influential man, but she finds herself drawn to a poor orphan boy with a startling ability to capture the beauty of the natural world. As the relationship between these two young people deepens, the transforming power of art and romantic love comes into conflict with the immovable rules of Chinese society.

This stunning fantasy adventure novel, inspired by China’s most famous painting, Along the River at the Qing Ming Festival, tells the story of a friendship both tender and bold. CC’s remarkable journey reminds readers that though time moves on, art and love endure.

Synopsis:

Lapsing into unconsciousness after an accident, CC vividly dreams about life in the Song Dynasty 800 years earlier, where an art-loving emperor befriends an orphan boy and his master's daughter, in an adventure inspired by the famous Chinese painting, Along the River at the Qing Ming Festival. By the best-selling author of Falling Leaves.

Synopsis:

Adeline Yen Mah was born in Tianjin, China, and trained to be a doctor in London. She had a distinguished career in medicine in the United States for many years. Her memoir for adults, Falling Leaves, was a worldwide bestseller and was translated into eighteen languages. Chinese Cinderella is her memoir for young adults. She divides her time between Los Angeles, London, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. Visit her Web site at www.adelineyenmah.com.
