Library JournalMichael is the pseudonym of a husband-and-wife team with a string of best sellers to their credit (Acts of Love). They have set their latest romantic effort in the turbulent and fascinating world of contemporary China. Miranda has moved there to work with a clothing firm manufacturing some of her fashion designs. At the airport, she meets a quiet and gracious man named Li and shares a taxi to her hotel. Over the course of a few deliciously detailed dinners and sightseeing afternoons, they form a tentative friendship that grows into a caring love affair between two mature adults who have suffered their share of disappointment and pain. As in every traditional love story, their relationship hits a few obstacles, including the vehement objections of Lis son, a man with business and political problems of his own. Although there is certainly nothing new here, this slow-paced, melancholy love poem is an appealing tale of two very different people who find soulmates in each other.
