The Jade Earring...

This fantastic secondhand book was given to me for my birthday...
I love it!

The story is set in Hong Kong and tells the story of a suitor trying to win over his love! He overcomes trials and tribulations and the disappointment of losing his most precious gift to his bride-to-be: a beautiful pair of rare jade earrings.

One earring is lost and his bride is distraught! The wedding is cancelled and he is heartbroken.

The jade earring mysteriously turns up in a hot bowl of noodles over dinner with his love's family.... the earrings are reunited and he wins his love's heart and hand in marriage!

We all love a happy ending!
