Multiple Voices. One of the Male Voices is called Mo Ran. I could not catch the names of the rest of the voices.
Just completed my listening of this audio book. Instead of waiting till later to share my review of this book, I have decided to share now while it is still fresh in my mind. It is an interesting story as it is quite mystical with time traveling and reincarnation element. The author creates a love story of Emperor Kangxi with a modern girl. This modern girl appeared twice in the life time of Kangxi and how her children were recognised as his favoured prince and princess. It is not too long and neither it is short, just right. When I reached the end of the story, I could not let go and went back to listen again.
FL – Yan Mo Er. ML – Emperor KangXi.
Time Travel from modern time to KangXi Emperor ruling time. She became the a GuGu (Su Ma La) responsible in taking care of KangXi. Though she is much older than the KangXi but somehow she looks very young. Both felt in love and KangXi married her in secret. She gave birth to a princess. A few years later, she got pregnant again and this time the physician predicted that her baby is a boy. The Empress was also pregnant at the same time but was predicted to have a daughter. Su Ma La agreed with the Empress’s suggestion to put her son to be listed as the Empress’s son. The Empress induced her labour when Su Ma La was scheduled to give birth. The Empress and her baby did not survive and Su Ma La also died due to excessive bleeding after the birth of her child. Su Ma La’s son became “Tai Zi”. She returned to the modern world for a few months but could not forget her lover and children. She met with a monk and asked to return to the past. This time, she returned as herself.
She appeared at the Mongolia plains. When the emperor saw her, he recognised her and arranged for her to enter the palace. She was reunited with her daughter but could not do the same with her son. Like previously, she was not given any consort title but was kept in the Emperor’s chamber as his main maid.
