The lovers were tragically parted for over four decades by the war while the undying love between them sustained YuLan through a life time of tragedy and hardship in the war-torn country. In the same period of time, Wangs will to live and will to be reunited with his love helped him stay one step ahead of the deadly consequences of his double life. As YuLan fights to stay alive, Wangs fight for his beliefs plunges him headlong into the historic Xian Incident, the event that rocked the world and changed the modern history of China. The author takes the readers through the heart wrenching sorrow of lovers departing, misery and tragedy of life in a war-torn country, hair raising atrocities of the Imperial Japanese Army in the vast land it invaded, and the intriguing twists and turns of power struggle and espionage in politics of peri-WWII China. In Chinese, YuLan means JADE ORCHID. In this novel, YuLan translates into a fascinating ride that is one part romance and one part thriller.
