Waiting, Paperback / softback Book


For more than seventeen years, Lin Kong, a devoted and ambitious doctor, has been in love with an educated, clever, modern woman, Manna Wu.

But back in his traditional home village lives the humble, loyal wife his family chose for him years ago.

Every summer, he returns to ask her for a divorce and every summer his compliant wife agrees but then backs out.

This time, after eighteen years' waiting, Lin promises it will be different.
