When on the banks of the Wen River, the beautiful Kung Shi Fair looks up to see Chang the Good pull fishing nets out of the water. Their eyes meet, and they are forever joined in love. The earth, the wind, and the sky seem just for them. Still, there are threats. In the tiny village by the river, a leopard lurks, and the father of Kung Shi Fair vows not to lose his only daughter. In a dramatic protest the two lovers, each in their own way, face the storms that besiege them, confirming forever their own sweet undying love.

The beloved writer Pam Conrad and distinguished artist S. Saelig Gallagher in brilliant partnership create a radiant and unforgettable Blue Willow tale to celebrate the purity and miracle of love that knows no bounds.
