But her so-called husband’s family has ruined her reputation, blaming his death on her. For the last six months she’s tended her family’s sheep in isolation on the mountainside, away from the stares and whispers of the townsfolk. Unfortunately, it seems the Vasiliyev family isn’t done with her.She’s taken a lover, Li-huan, the brother of her sister’s foreign husband. When Bogdan Vasilieyev discovers her with him, she knows that he will tell the priest. But then things get worse. Her husband comes back from the dead.A follow-up to Cheney’s “The Dragon’s Child” and “Early Winter, Near Jenli Village,” (published as a single volume, The Dragon’s Child), this short story brings back characters from those two tales.
