Summary
"China, 1937: When Japanese bombs begin falling on the city of Nanking, nineteen-year-old Hu Lian and her classmates flee. Lian and a convoy of students, faculty, and staff must walk a thousand miles to the safety of China's western provinces. They have been entrusted with a priceless treasure, a 500-year-old collection of myths and folklore known as the Library of Legends. Lian finds friendship and a cautious romance with Liu Shaoming. But after one classmate is murdered and another arrested, Lian must escape from the convoy before a family secret puts her in danger. Accompanied by Shao and the enigmatic maidservant Sparrow, Lian makes her way to Shanghai. On the journey, as the ancient books travel across China, they awaken immortals and guardian spirits to embark on an exodus of their own, one that changes the country's fate forever."--Publisher
