When they are reunited after a separation of many years, can they start their relationship again? Or is it destined to be the romance of only half a lifetime?
 
This affectionate and captivating novel tells the moving story of an enduring love affair, and offers a fascinating window onto Chinese life in the first half of the twentieth century.
