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.

Praise for Chinese Cinderella and the Secret Dragon Society:
