Rain and Snow of 1939 is a novel that is set during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression from 1931 to 1945, but rather than focusing on battle scenes, tells of events that take place in between them and on their periphery. A Japanese woman arrives in China with one goal in mind: reuniting with her beloved husband. However, she is taken captive by a folk hero of the anti-Japanese resistance, Zhu Yidian, and her search for her husband becomes a struggle to survive. This is a novel about romantic entanglements and turning points in life, packed with thrills and suspense, a monument to history, a meditation on human nature, a masterwork of emotional depth, and a good story.
