Description

The "Hand-in-Hand" Office of Wanshan County received an odd letter from Beijing. The author said that she would like to sponsor the education of a child in poverty through university. Her requirements: the child had to be a girl, be born on May 4, 1990, and her home be surrounded by camellias in bloom. Furthermore, the office was not allowed to let her or her family know the identity of the benefactor. How strange...

Fang Xiaocao, coincidentally, met all of these requirements. In addition to paying for her attendance, the anonymous person sent her a package containing school supplies, as well as a nice red shirt.

Twelve years later, Xiaocao was admitted to a university in Beijing. She wanted to use the opportunity to find the mysterious good Samaritan. However, she knew nothing about her; China, too, had changed greatly in those twelve years. Would she find her?
