This is my first attempt in translating so… Please be kind… 😀
Summary from Baike…
她以为她最想要的是他的命，可是当他口吐鲜血躺在她怀里，只问了一句 “你为何回来？” 时，她为何却泪如雨下？

Two similar unbending persons with no love and feelings between them, are fated to be continuously intertwine an entire lifetime. He thought that he wanted her total submission but when she was kneeling at his feet, why did he felt meaningless?
She thought that all she wanted was his life, but when he spurted blood while he was lying in her arms and asked “Why did you return?” Why did her tears keep falling?
Various mysteries in imperial harem, a gold heist, a case of dead palace maid, the baffling death of a young prince, the secret around crown prince’s parentage… So many secrets and thrills!
This is the 3rd book of the series and the entire “A Mistaken Marriage Match” series is on the lives of the 3 Qing sisters. There is a 4th book that covers their offsprings.
- Book 1 – Youngest Sister: Qing Mo
- Book 2 – Oldest Sister: Qing Ling
- Book 3 – Middle Sister: Qing Feng
All 3 Qing sisters are famous for their talents and beauty and before the events in the books took place, their family were killed and they were sent to the Emperor (which he kept one and gave two of them to his subjects). The sisters disfigured themselves and decided to commit suicide on the journey there.
Both book 1 and 2 is about the souls of 2 modern females (in the 21 century) being transported to the past into the oldest and youngest Qing sister after they hung themselves. The only sister that still remain as herself is Qing Feng.
I felt that Qing Feng is a strong woman in her era, to be able to withstand so many hardship. From her description or view of her sisters, it felt that she was the strongest one, in term of mindset. Despite not the oldest, she worries for her eldest and younger sister and if they are able to get along with their husbands. She even protect them to her best abilities in the inner palace. Salute!
