This darkly romantic novel centres on Mei Puti, a 40-year-old, unmarried professor of literature, who suffers because her father is regarded as a dangerous member of the old elite. Suspicions about Puti's politics infect Fang Zhi, the doctor who is treating her for cancer, and who loves her.

From Library Journal:

This very gentle love story is set amid the glaringly harsh and chaotic Cultural Revolution. The protagonists, Mei Puti, an ostracized author and professor of literature, and Fang Zhi, a caring and nonpolitical doctor, are two like souls who manage to find each other. Yet they must endure the senseless harassment and abuse of anyone suspected of being part of the thinking world. Puti's small and meager home is ransacked repeatedly. Her devoted friend is forced to work long hours at hard physical labor: her head is shaven to further humiliate her, and she is denounced by her son. Puti herself, diagnosed with breast cancer, is barely able to seek treatment and, because she is considered a "dangerous" person, is then given substandard care. Fluidly rendered by Lykes, this is an inspiring story about friendship, love, and the ability of the human spirit to hope and somehow survive.?Janis Williams, Shaker Heights P.L., OH
