Excellent read! Brings to life an classic story of ancient China. This is the story of a concubine who would not play politics in the emperor's court. As a result the head eunich has this beautiful maiden's portrait painted in an unflattering way. She is never chosen by the emperor until the time comes to choose a gift bride to appease the Mongols. The emperor discovers too late that he has given away not the least beautiful, but the most beautiful maiden in China! She does her duty to her family and China and ordered and goes on to become a queen of the Mongol tribes. Beautiful insights into the kind of life and customs of the times, told in an entertaining story!

It was an Ok story. In my oppinion, it was a little drawn out. But I liked Silver Snow and I liked Willow and her selflessness. A nice story about a Chinese legend/myth.
