In an uncustomary show of compassion, Fei Long allows his little sister to escape her family duty to be married off to an emperor. He then persuades a feisty tea girl, Yan Ling, to pose as his sister, and he undertakes the task of preparing her to behave like a princess. Thus starts a journey which leads the reader down passionate paths, tense turns and rolling roads of uncertainty. By the time I reached the end, I let out a sigh of relief because the happy-ever-after was earned. It made sense and wasn’t contrived.
My Fair Concubine is the first book by Jeannie Lin I’ve read. After reading it, I will place books by Jennie Lin on my MUST BE READ book list. I will also know to not start a book by Jeannie Lin unless I’m free to stay up all night to finish the book. She’s not the type of author that gives you chapter endings to go to sleep on.
My Fair Concubine is a fabulous historical.
