Summary
A young Chinese princess is sent from her father's kingdom to marry the king of a far-off land. She must leave behind her home of splendours: sour plums and pink peach petals and most precious and secret of all the small silkworm. She begs her father to let her stay, but he insists that she go and fulfil her destiny as the queen of Khotan. An enchanting tale of hidden beauty and fierce courage, here is a coming-of-age tale of a brave young princess, retold in the style of T'ang Dynasty poetry and illustrated with charm and grace
Summary
In long-ago China, as a young princess prepares to leave her parents' kingdom to travel to far-off Khotan where she is to marry the king, she decides to surreptitiously take with her a precious reminder of home
