Road to the North (Thinking of Lu Xiang Bei) 一念路向北 by 吉祥夜 Ji Xiang Ye


What is so great about Lu Xiang Bei?!

Just because he has a handsome face that can kill his country (literally~) plus a dazzling smile and so he can fool my dad so easily?

And because of that, he got the position as a deputy director!

That’s still alright… but why did her old father even made her marry him?

This man really has nothing better to do. With his handsome face, he should be a gigolo! Why come to be Tong Family’s son-in-law?

Tsk. I, Tong Yi Nian, do not want this kind of husband! It is so obvious he is marrying her for her family’s wealth and power.

She doesn’t want this kind of husband. From the start of their marriage, he has been so cold to her. His heart as cold as an ice, as hard as a stone.

She doesn’t want this kind of husband. Everyday he comes home so late at night. She is sick of waiting and worrying.

She doesn’t want this kind of husband. He will just leave her immediately when another woman calls him.

She doesn’t want this kind of husband. His mistress can point at her nose and scold her, and yet he is still protecting that vixen.

He doesn’t want this kind of husband. That’s why she threw the divorce agreement in front of his face and shouted, “Lu Xiang Bei! I had enough of you. I want to get a divorce!”

But why is everyone around her reprimanding her?

“Tong Yi Nian, your brain must have got crushed by the door! Where can you find a man with such good eligibility like Lu Xiang Bei anymore?”

“Tong Yi Nian, do you know by letting him go, how many young girls will queue up to marry him?”

“Tong Yi Nian, if you dare to divorce Lu Xiang Bei, from now on, you are not my daughter anymore!”

“Jie (translated as: sister), Are you really going to divorce brother-in-law? Then I shall not stand on ceremony! Brother-in-law, here I come! *sings* You ask me how deep I love you…”

Who will know her pain? They have been married for two years, they should be close to one another, holding each other’s hand as they look forward to their future, understand each other. Yet, they are so far from one another, as if across the horizon.

If everything can start all over again, can she return to that mid-summer, and not pluck the most beautiful lotus among the leaves? Then, she will not fall into the pond, and will even more not get rescued by him. As a result, they will not get married but still so distant from one another… But… but… Lu Xiang Bei, we are already divorced but why are you still coming to ruin my potential love peach blossom?

    I am really curious after reading the summary, how can the heroine forgive the cheating and the flaunting of his mistress in front of her? Did Lu Xiang Bei at least grovel a little?

    If you do not already know, this book will be adapted into a drama starring Hawick. I don’t know how close the drama will follow the book. I recommended this novel to cloud bcos I tut the male lead is deaf since she has a fetish for ‘disabled’ males, lol.

    After reading the synopsis, this has the shadow of Sealed With a Kiss but instead of the mistress being the protagonist, this book has the wife. I think bcos Sealed With a Kiss has good response so Hawick wants to repeat its success with book of the same kind.

    Thanks for answering my question. I really hate when I read a book where the heroe puts in priority another woman for some reason, and expect the heroine to be understanding, without even explaining the reason. In this kind o books I skip some parts of the book too.

    Well, most romance novels are written from the female lead’s point of view, so as readers, we only get to see what the female lead knows and not what the male lead thinks. Hence, there will be misunderstandings between the male and female leads, since the female lead cannot read the male lead’s mind. That is exactly why I prefer novels written from the third person omniscient point of view. That way, we readers get to see into every character’s thoughts.

    Oh sorry, cloudy as I dun know this book is of such poor quality. The book review is indeed average. Wonder why Hawick wanna adapt it into a drama. Anyway since he is the star, I am pretty sure he gonna change the focus to himself so you’ll see plenty from his point of view. In conclusion, skip the book & wait for the drama:)
