She transmigrated into the body of a little girl from a fishing village! Her father is honest and foolishly filial, while her mother is weak and ill. Moreover, her siblings are still young children.

Her father was the best fisher in the village and breadwinner of the entire family. However, when he got injured and was on the verge of death, her cruel grandparents and uncle kicked her whole family out. They were hungry and cold with nothing but an empty house…

But that’s ok! She has a multicolored stone that can accelerate the growth of crops. She was also an expert at preparing braised meat in her previous life.

Just watch as she, an eight year-old girl, challenges the taste buds of people who lived during ancient times. With improved high-yielding crops, she’s going to become the most famous farming expert in the world!

I found most of this story to be quite adorable, especially the earlier parts when the MC is still a prepubescent child and the setting is restricted to the small seaside village she grows up in. Watching their immediate family break away from the evil step-grandmother and the useless grandfather, and working together (at MC's "inspiration") to build a better life is quite heart warming. Some spoilers...

While at first glance, even the MC thought she got sent back to the historical Ancient China, this actually takes place in a slightly... more>> alternate version of Ancient China, due to...
Spoiler

... the fact that MC is not the only transmigrator around. The current emperor and his grandfather are also both transmigrators, and they've already butterflied a lot of big changes into the annals of history. This is a Ming Dynasty which has built a great navy and preempted Europe in the Age of Sail. MC is the only one who got a golden finger with her transmigration though.

[collapse]

While there are a great many handsome young men who may have potentially fallen for the MC, she only ends up with one love interest. I'll spoil that now, it's
Spoiler

the young prince they rescue from the sea in the beginning chapters. Of course, he then disappears for 200+ chapters before returning to Chinese shores. Afterwards, it takes some more time before he realizes that he's fallen for the MC. And then even longer for MC and her family to accept his suit (since she's so young and the difference between their status so vast).

Also, even though he's not a transmigrator, the ML has a cheat of his own. He is able to read other people's emotions, and later, thoughts. People like transmigrators are immune to this ability, though. The way ML awakened to this power in his childhood was traumatic, and it was uncontrollable earlier on, causing him to have berzerker fits. Of course, MC is the ray of light who is able to bring him out of his berserk state.

[collapse]

The first half of the story takes place almost entirely at her home village and the nearby town. The second half moves to the capital, where the MC starts wielding her cheat and her knowledge for the betterment of the people (while also making "some" money on the side with her side businesses).

There are some flaws I personally found in this story... One is the weird reverse harem charm that the MC has. I don't mind animals liking her because that was well explained by her cheat. But all the exceptional young men in the story getting a crush at first sight on a prepubescent girl who's not even noted to be especially beautiful...I didn't think that contributed anything to the story, especially after it became clear who she would end up with fairly early on.

Another flaw is that while it makes sense for MC to sometimes talk brashly because her modern sensibilities have no sense of the taboo subjects of the era (like whenever commenting about nobility/the imperial house), it stretched disbelief that she'd always get away with this with no consequences. Especially after she arrived at the capital a controversial figure in the eyes of the nobility/court. Either someone with the brains and adult mentality like hers should know better than to speak loosely, or she should've had to face some kind of consequence at least once. But eh. This is something of a mary sue MC. <<less

It's still pretty early and tags are bare so I don't really know what I'm getting into. I would probably edit this in the future but for now...

Things I like:

Spoiler

    • Intimate family relationships. MC loves her new and old family. Her new father and mother are weakwilled but very loving. Her new siblings are much more assertive and clever than the parents. They all love each other, it's pretty sweet.
    • Cute kids. The siblings would probably be one of the focuses of the first part of the story so if you like reading about kids, this is good.
    • Cooking. Food is another main focus of the story. This is mc's main talent as of now and where she gets her money. There would probably be more dishes and ingredients described in later chapters.
    • MC is not op? Again, it's still too early to say, but I'm hoping she's not. Ofc, she's beautiful, it's hard to find average-looking MCs (mc's who turn beautiful don't count). Her knowledge is justified, she's mentally 29 and she didn't live near the ocean or mountain in her past life, so it's great to see her not knowing much about those topics. It's realistic, at least.
[collapse]

Things I feel ambivalent for:

Spoiler

    • Family squabbles. Common in cnovels and typical of transmigration stories. There hasn't been much face-slapping yet, though. So I'm a bit curious to know how that's going to happen.
    • Cheat. We don't know how strong the cheat is yet, since it tired itself out after saving MC from death. Hopefully, it's not too all-powerful.
[collapse]

Things I feel cautious of:

Spoiler

    • So far, we have a prince, a restaurant owner, and a mountain hunter as flowerboys that MC has met. As MC is an 8-year old, there's no sign of romance yet. However, I avoid reverse harems, harems, and love triangles in general because it's really not my cup of tea. Even if it's not a harem, just reading how a lot of side characters fall in love with the MC is very tiring for me. I personally hope this wouldn't be like that, but I know there are some who do, so I'll give a heads up if it is like that.

Thanks to the translator for good quality translations, fast updates, and pictures of food!

Edit: June 22 2019

Spoiler

There are more tags now, so I guess I know more or less what I'm getting into.

Thanks to charysa for clearing up some points. Knowing there would be pseudo reverse harem charm, makes me feel conflicted. I'll keep reading for now, but hopefully it's not too bad.
