Translator synopsis: Reclaimed by her noble family after a hellish childhood that wasn’t meant to be hers, Qin Yining is bestowed the gift of a hellish family instead. Just as she turns her lot around and gains acceptance, her country is plunged into danger instead. In this absolutely riveting and spellbinding tale, what does our MC do when an entire dynasty is at stake?
Translator’s note: No transmigration, no rebirth, just a good ole smart cookie MC and a fantastic story. Hints of an ancient China version of Hidden Marriage in this one!
Original novel synopsis: She was the firstborn of the prime minister, but was switched at birth in infancy to eke out a living in the city. When she finally returned to her family, she found herself in the throes of inner residence scheming instead. She wanted to reside peacefully with her sisters and be a filial member of the younger generation of the family, but this gem of a family didn’t want to leave her be!
Thus, she woke up to the harsh reality that she herself would have to join in the fray in order to live a good life! Fighting against white lotuses, trampling green tea, she can mount an ultimate comeback even when dealt a lousy hand!
It’s just… “You, traitor! Don’t think I’ll shelter you just because you’ve won over this girl’s stomach!”
Hmm, how impressive eh, prince! Does your family know that you’ve been letting your enemies go, framing your loyal subjects, and cooking up a storm in the kitchens?
