Chinese Cinderella, The Mystery of the Song Dynasty Painting by Adeline Yen Mah
From the internationally bestselling author of Chinese Cinderella and the Secret Dragon Society, this is a gripping historical fantasy set in the Song Dynasty and inspired by one of China's most famous paintings.
Is she dreaming, or has Chinese Cinderella lived a previous life?
Following a fall at the river town of Feng Jie, Chinese Cinderella is whisked away to hospital. There she sees a copy of an ancient painting, 'Along the River at Qing Ming'.
As she lapses in and out of consciousness, she is haunted by vivid dreams that seem strange, yet somehow familiar. A tale emerges, of friendship, wealth and poverty, eunuchs and an Emperor who loved art, as Chinese Cinderella recalls a life lived eight hundred years ago during the Song Dynasty.
But is it real, or all in her imagination...
