A romantic novel written at the beginning of the Twentieth Century in what was Cochinchine at the time, it is unique in many ways. When novels in the native language, Vietnamese, which was still in its infancy, were in fact a novelty, the author was able to create an intriguing and suspenseful plot and narrated it with the ease of a common street oral narrator. The book is republished with the utmost care, keeping intact all that would make it a unique gem. In addition to illustrations and maps to help with the geography of the setting, the editor also included a well researched Note Section to explain all archaic terms and idioms pertaining to the local dialect.
