Daughter-in-Law of a Noble House


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

There was chaos throughout all lands under Heavens, while warlords were vying for supremacy.

Fu Jin, the daughter of an exterminated noble clan, was forced to marry Wei Tan, an ambitious and formidable eldest son at the apex of his life.

This new daughter-in-law of the noble house received the solicitude of the officials and overturned the internal strife. In times of chaos, displacement and the subjugation of prominent clans, as a married woman one only wished to survive, conduct business, manage the affairs of the household and live one’s life in peace.

Amidst the chaotic war, she watched the changes in the Imperial court and the battle for power. One exquisite heart had set in motion thousands of strategies and success was but a leap!

Yet, one was not able to scheme beyond his ten years’ plan of ‘giving a taste of one’s own medicine’.

The eyes of the fourteen year old Wei Tan, who had arrived at the Imperial Guards, caught sight of Fu Jin. His emotions stirred when they encountered each other in the Southern market. He noticed her eyes would dart to the right when she was calculating and knew that she had a penchant for haggling prices. He believed the ‘exorbitant price’ he had paid for the plum flower bottle in her hands would certainly attract the beauty’s attention. Little did he expect that she would only remember the hundred and fifty coins. She had paid no attention to the build or stature of the person who had paid.

Ten years later, what was gratifying was that the affairs of the world were ever changing. In the end, after many twists and turns, she actually became his Furen.

This historical story moves quickly and is very interesting if you like historical slice of life novels like To Be A Virtuous Wife or Eight Treasure Trousseau.

The quality of translation from both translators is excellent. The chapters are long.

Fu Jin is a very smart 20-year-old woman in ancient warlord China. The novel opens on her wedding night to General Wei Tan, who threatened a city with his army until Fu Jin was sent to marry him.

Fu Jin is from a very noble family, but her past is tragic. In the... more>> past, the Empress Dowager sheltered her when her family was killed, but after the Empress Dowager passed away, Fu Jin was married off to a noble fool at age 15.

After her wedding night with General Wei Tan, Fu Jin is sent to the capital while General Wei Tan goes back to war. In the capital, Fu Jin meets all the noble men and women that she grew up with, who are now in high positions of power, including the new Emperor, Empress, and their highest officials. Fu Jin is very smart, emotionally strong (after all the chaos and civil war), and fortunate (in that she is physically safe in such tumultuous times).

From the summary blurb, it seems General Wei Tan met her when she was a girl and he has loved her for a long time. The translator has already promised that this is a

happy ending.

Very good! It wont disappoint you I can guarantee it.

Poignant and sweet. Logical and calm. Not Mary Sue-ish MC. She's just smart and emotionally stable enough to get through the tragedies that happened in her past.

ML is one of the best I've read about. Loyal and strong. He provided a safe haven for the MC.

HE guaranteed.

This is a good read.

At the beginning when the both MC got married, their relationship was cold and the FL forced to remarried for survival, the ML married her for her background. I could said that ML was a fair and upright man, he help FL to meet her ex-fiancee and give her the freedom to choose. I think ML could understand that FL hasn't put down her past completely.

Their relationship was starting to take off when the FL choose to stay with ML.

There were power struggles, wars, family conflicts... more>> and scheming, the romance was good and heart warming.

I think that the story was quite realistic, the author just write the plot smoothly without forcing it, which is I like.

Every character described realistically with their own personality and make the story alive. <<less

I started this very interesting story a while ago and was really disappointed when it was dropped by the original translator 😞 But I’m so happy now that it’s been picked up again 🥳

I’ve read so many stories (thanks NovelUpdates 🙏) This one ranks among the ancient China stories with an intelligent FL and decent ML 😁

Really enjoying this one! Our MC has been through a lot. In fact, so have all the characters. Talk about a story with 3D characters? This one's definitely full of layers. I think it will be fun to re-read once done to get all of the hints about other's motivations/backstories.

This is set in a war torn China as the new capital tries to stabilize the famine prone country under a war lord and a (mostly) puppet emperor. Fu Jin is chosen as the wife of the warlord's heir, Wei Tan.... more>> It's a marriage of convenience to secure support of scholars, many of whom revere her father. Though it's her second marriage, she doesn't know squat about the love between a man and a woman. When her new husband keeps avoiding her

and even sends her into the arms of her ex

, she's certain that he has zero interest in her. Makes sense, right? So, should she run away when he gives her the opportunity? <<less
