    Lin Kong lives in two worlds, struggling with the conflicting claims of two utterly different women as he moves through a society designed to regulate his every move and stifle the promptings of his heart. For more than seventeen years, this ambitious doctor has been in love with an educated, modern woman, Manna Wu. But back in his home village lives the wife his family chose for him when he was young -- a humble and touchingly loyal woman, whom he visits in order to ask, again and again, for a divorce. Every summer, his ... Show more

Waiting

by Rubycanary on Nov 29, 2007

Having lived in Asia, I found this to be a beautiful and sad tale about the values of love and marriage. It was very realistic and tragic. Lin Kong waits two decades to marry the woman he really loves. The time it takes to get a divorce without the wife's permission. His humble wife lives at home, dedicated to him, while she knows that he is planning for when their marriage will end. When he finally does get to marry the love of his life, he finds that the expectations are nothing like the reality.
