Many people thought that the sweet-looking second miss of the Gu Family must be a gentle, kind and soft person.
Yet sometimes, the truth was in the hands of the few.
This is a story of a tyrant flower in the guise of a delicate flower and a seemingly sickly but extremely long-lived and infatuated emperor.
The infatuated emperor’s each day: spoil the tyrant flower, and take care of government affairs along the way.
In truth, this is a sweet story.
Translator summary: Sweet sweet story in the lines of To Be A Virtuous Wife and Eight Treasure Trousseau. Chronologically, Ascending, Do Not Disturb was written by the author after this novel so expect something that meld a bit of ADND and 8TT.
TBVW was all about the intrigue between the wife and consorts in terms of what the female lead had to deal with. In 8TT, the female lead was involved more in her husband’s attempts to get to the throne, conflict within the imperial family, and gaining trust with each other. In this novel … conflict within the aristocracy is one of the focal points. But what distinguishes this novel is the relative large cast of characters who are memorable in their own ways.
