How difficult is it to fall in love with another person? One hour, a few doses of Chinese medicine, a faint smile, her heart is full of admiration for that gentle and kind man. That man saw some of her unhealthy city lifestyle and her occasional childishness, his heart becomes more indulgent, tender and a bit more responsibility.  The Chinese medicine, he made for her is slowly healing the deep wounds in each other hearts.

The male lead is a patient, gentle and good Chinese medicine doctor called He Su Ye.  The female lead is a white collar worker in a hotel called Shen Xi Fan. This is a nice and warm book.

    I actually read half of the book but gave up because the plot was pretty dull, slow and boring. But I must say that the male lead is always ready to sacrifice for his loved ones. Unfortunately I didnt gain any medical knowledge because the Chinese is too profound for me to read :S

    Haha I prefer reading but I’m going to attempt to read and listen at the same time for Once Promised ><

    The ending is happy ending right?

    haha, this book was under my nose all the time, but I never picked it up to read. The one you’re reading with the various readers is it the radio drama or the audiobook? I’m saving this for plane time.

    It sounds so heartwarming!

    I must be boring because I loved this story. I’m not an audiobook person but I read it all. Very sweet male lead and a likable female lead. A love story that is 淡如水 but sweet. Must be the mindset I’m in because my poor heart just doesn’t want to be tortured by things like unrequited love, revenge, horrible misunderstandings, love triangles, etc. It’s just a story about how two people met, fell in love, had butterflies and doubts (“does he really like me?” “What do I feel for him?”), got together, and fell in love. Simple, maybe boring, but my cup of tea right now and may be yours if you don’t want heartache either. 🙂

    Peanuts:
    This story feels like Gu Man’s He Yi Sheng Xiao Mo. Thus, if you like that kind of book, this one is a must read or listen.

    This novel was my first modern c-novel. (I used to be an ancient reader only.) I found He Yi because I was searching for something at had a similar feel to this one. I would say He Yi has a bit more “angst” than this one, although not too much. He Yi probably more “exciting” than this one too. Will probably post a more detailed review in He Yi’s section later. As a novel, this one probably isn’t as good since there really is not much plot, but it’s just a feel good novel… One to help you if you need a pick me up.

    Thanks for your mini review, Hoju. This sounds nice! Now that I know it’s a happy ending, I shall put it on my reading list.

    *virtual high 5* Thanks for the welcome, Peanuts! I know that some people were turned off by the constant Chinese medicine references in the story. I personally thought it interesting and showed that the author did her homework. I liked how each chapter was named after a Chinese herbal medicine and how it was worked into the story. It actually made me fascinated by Chinese medicine.

    Don’t get me wrong. I like my fair share of angst. However, my poor heart lately has just yearned for not just a HE but a happy journey before arrival at the ending, too.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I’ll put it into my to-read list.

    Peanuts, I think I have sixth sense! Haha. I was thinking when I was commenting at Silent Separation, I sense peanuts going to get Hoju to write summaries soon. Hahahha! And then I see it here! Haha, peanuts you are truly SSB’s owner. Haha, ok I will definitely check with you, your brain is an encyclopedia. I have no time to read in April, though the top of my reading list now is 销魂殿 – I checked on douban, it’s a happy ending (i think).

    Hey Hoju, I really like the sound of the Chinese Medicine references! I also haven’t read a simple love story in a loooong while. 🙂

    Ahahaha! Peanuts you are right! Your memory is AMAZING. It is a teacher-student relationship, though everyone on douban seems to crush the second senior? The plot device is time travel right? Haha. I don’t really like these aspects, but decided to read it because someone said that it’s one of 十四郎(Shi Si Lang) better novels. I try to mix things up and read stranger plots – I think this will be my first shi fu tu di (master disciple) book!

    I actually read this book some time ago last year.

    After reading this book, I actually thought having a herbalist as a bf is pretty sweet.>< drinking the herbal tea stuff would actually taste sweet in your heart if the recipe was written by him. haha

    But how cool to have a dr for a spouse…..no worries about health issues…hahaha…..

    But questions…….does xi fan’s 师兄 like her as well? I suspect he does…….

    I just finished reading this book. I like the story and the Chinese medicine references. It’s fresh and different from the other novels. If my doctor is good looking and nice like the main guy, I’m willing to go to the hospital everyday. Haha
