Atop the Shoulders of Giants

A Winter Wedding

On the 9th day of the 2nd month of 1658, the Zhao gathered with their family and friends to celebrate the wedding of Tao Min Zhao and Li Go Wan.

Despite the recent declarations of war by several foreign powers against each other, the gathering is expected to be a joyous and peaceful affair.

Tao’s younger sister Mei Li, a young woman of marriageable age, prepares to spend the day avoiding the subject of finding a suitor and generally trying to keep herself entertained without being too exceptionally rude to her family’s guests. Little does she realize how powerfully this day will effect her future and the future of her family.
