This is 7th book by Yun Wai Tian Du that I listened. This book is much better than 桃花朵朵笑良缘 (Tao Hua Duo Duo Xiao Liang Yuan). I was attracted to the book because of the introductory episode which was recorded in multiple voices but the actual book was only recorded in a single female voice. I did not take notice of the author’s name until a few episodes later. It sounded serious stuff from the introductory episode, but there are lots of comical parts in the book.
Xiao Wen Jun (FL) fell in love with 3rd prince (Li Jing Yu) in her past live but was accused of having an affair with her personal guard (Ping An). She was killed and her family was punished. After the rebirth, she went back to 3 years before her first meeting with LJY.
I will list down a few main characters in the book.
Ye Zhi Chu is actually a man impersonating as a woman and became 2nd Prince’s consort. Ha Ha Ha. YZC is also the abandoned son of Liu Consort before she entered the palace.
Ping An’s true identity is the first prince (Li Jing Kun). He pretended to be stupid and a dim witted boy.
Li Jing Chien, 4th prince was actually borne by the empress. Ping Consort gave birth to a princess and swapped it with a baby boy. Unfortunately, the baby boy did not survive hence she swapped her daughter with the empress’ son.
Liu Consort – the antagonist in the story. A runaway princess form the Tung Nu Country after she failed to overthrow her mother from the throne. Married a common man and gave birth to a boy (YZC). She then took on a new identity and went to the palace to become a royal consort. She gave birth to 3rd prince, Li Jing Yu
So, the story went on with FL trying all kinds of method to thwart LJY’s plan from becoming the next crown prince. FL kept remembering Ping An’s loyalty towards her and his death in her past life hence she started to take notice of Ping An. Very slowly both of them were attracted to each other. FL later found out that Ping Ann is actually the first crown prince that went missing many years ago and he was not the dim witted boy that he pretended to be. After knowing ML’s true identity, FL avoided ML because she did not want to be involved in their fight for the throne to avoid the same mistake that she did in her past life.
