Yichang municipality, Hubei province, China, early 1970s. High-school student Jingqiu is one of many educated urban youth sent to the countryside to be re-educated under a dictate from Chairman Mao. Jing's father is a political prisoner somewhere in China, and her mother, a former teacher branded as a capitalist, is now reduced to menial work to support Jing and her two younger siblings. When Jing arrives with a group at Xiping village in the Yangtze River's Three Gorges region, she meets geology student Jianxin, nicknamed Old Three, who is the son of a high-ranking military officer, but whose mother committed suicide after being branded a rightist. Despite their disparate social backgrounds and a political atmosphere that forbids the relationship, Jingqiu and Jianxin fall desperately in love. But their budding romance is cut short by fate . . .

The novel is rewarding for its spare prose and subtle treatment of conflicts, quarrels, racial ambiguities and acts of transcendent heroism woven into the story . . . There are doomed love stories, amid the tragedies, but they are dawn from a deeper well and speak to the persistence of humanity in the grimmest of circumstances.” The Guardian
