Description

Knopf Canada welcomes one of China's most acclaimed and bestselling writers-author of Raise the Red Lantern-to the list with a fascinating retelling of a magical story-already an international bestseller in China and Europe. Through Binu's extraordinary story, Su Tong illuminates one of China's most magical myths. In Peach village, crying is forbidden. But as a child, Binu never learnt to hide her tears. Shunned by the villagers, she faces a bleak future until she meets the man she will marry, Qiliang. A few years after their marriage, Qiliang disappears. Binu learns that he has been transported hundreds of miles and forced to labour on a project of terrifying ambition and scale-the building of the Great Wall. Inspired by her love for her husband, Binu sets out on an extraordinary journey across Great Swallow Mountain, with only a blind frog for company. What follows is an unforgettable story of passion, hardship and magical adventure.show more
