For forty years, Jiang Guizhi has waited patiently for one man. When they met, she was only 19, the apple of her parents’ eye, and the leader of the Jiang Spear League.

She fell for him at first sight, marrying him over her parents’ objections. But their bliss was to last only three years. Since then, forty more have passed. Her son and grandson have all grown up. And still, she obstinately waits and waits…

It is difficult to love, it is harder to let go. Will they be able to rekindle their former romance? It all depends on who wins the battle!
