Before dawn, on a windy winter morning, a young man and a teenaged girl meet near the west gate of a small town. In rickshaws, they race off into the dark countryside. The next morning, after they cross a river, gunshots ring out; her father has sent armed guards to chase them. They escape, but the young man is entangled in her silk threads and can never return to his hometown.
A brilliant young teacher who writes operas, Ping-Nan Yang has fallen for his one major weakness: women. Tall and distinctive, romantic by nature, he attracts too many of them for his own good.
This book, translated from Chinese, tells a gripping but true story, involving young love, romance, blackmail, betrayal, a huge risk, regret, second chances, and consequences.
