Miss Su had lived a sheltered life focused on learning the three obediences and four virtues since she was young. Before she could marry, she was killed by the autumn rain. Reborn as a peasant girl in the 1980s, Su Danhong became a wife and also unexpectedly got a spiritual spring! She didn’t expect that her previous life’s embroidery skills were master level embroidery skills in this life? The master was not a master. Miss Su didn’t care. What she cared about was that she could use these skills to make money and not worry about clothes and food. Growing precious flowers and plants, embroidering beautiful mountains and rivers, and enjoying the simple life.

This is the story of an ancient girl from a noble family who went through rebirth to the 1980s where she farmed and gave birth.

This would be good if it wasn't the frustrating underlying misogyny. This isn't a she gets rich, it's a she helps her husband gets rich, her husband gets the credit, sister in law is s*upid and just looks down on her, plot devices are just thrown out the window, and she just becomes a decoration for some reason, becoming the broodmare.


Alostgolden said it best.

... more>> It's chill? Maybe. It's filled with people more greedy than harem stories. But for some reason, apparently this is rural china in the 80s????


I won't not say there's no good point but I finished the story out of pure spite and wasn't satisfied. Just saying.

Edit: Eff. So much eff.

My spite compelled me to finish it but it's so nauseating. Breaks your three views. Disgusting.

I think my hairline vanished from pulling my hair from frustration.

Eff. Someone let me 0/5 stars this. F*ck.

Good points? I can't even remember any of them. God, help me. <<less

I don't mind the fact that the heroine is just a housewife, I even like it, I find that refreshing. What I don't like is that let's ignore the fact that in literally every paragraph there is a sentence to demean women, "because she is a woman she is s*upid, she has no capacity, she does not. don't know how to think... ”And when you finally compliment a woman, it gives something like“ even if it's a woman, she is... ”, not to mention it's normal“ that he is better... more>> than a woman afterwards. everything is a man ”. we're going to put all of this down to the fact that it's a novel that takes place in the 80s, in the middle of the countryside, while good even in novels that takes place in the middle ages I never read stuff a quarter so misogynist. What bothers me the most is that literally every time there is a problem in the novel it's caused by a woman, men are kind of great wise, sensible, stable, logical, think... so that women are old shrews, raving fools, causing trouble for nothing. Whenever someone has no value (lying, betraying, cheating, being ungrateful...) it is a woman, whenever someone does something bad (stealing, abandoning husband and child, rip off...) she is a woman. Every problem, every story, every bad deed is ALWAYS A WOMAN, NEVER A MAN. I can't help but think that all of this misogyny is the author's that is found in his writing. <<less

Basically, it follows the plot pattern of Back to the Sixties: Farm, Get Wealthy & Raise the Cubs (same author). If you liked that one, then you'll probably like this too. However, BTTS is much better in my opinion. Below are some cons to prepare you for what's to be expected, but regardless, reading this is enough to relieve boredom.


  1. The author's blatant misogyny: Every family has a shrew daughter-in-law/mother-in-law. Every villain is a female and every understanding member of a family is a male. The author only makes unlikable female characters, but there's no such thing as an annoying male character. It is always a female who destroys a family's peace and success. The only time a female will shut up is when she has plenty of money. It's really a hateful read because this is not a one-time occurrence. Every conflict in this novel is caused by a female because there's not enough money to fill her greed.
  2. MC's personality: She's way too passive of a character that she did not even get culture-shocked when she transmigrated. Whenever something happens, MC will react with 'she doesn't care.' For every backstabbing, betrayal, being taken advantage of, being badmouthed, MC will say she doesn't care. She's way too passive.
  3. Underwhelming ending: (see spoiler for details)
... more>>

I persevered until the end just so I can read about the retribution of two undying c*ckroaches, a.k.a. Ji mu and Ji Yunyun, but wtf author just decides to leave that part for epilogue-ish chapters. Ji Yunyun has been a b!tch since the first 10 chapters, and Ji mu since ~330th chapter. I expected some chapters dedicated to how they suffered and got the retribution they deserve, but as I've said, the writing style for those chapters is for an epilogue. We don't read much about how they suffered, but author just let us know that they did not have a happy ending. I'm so annoyed, especially about Ji mu's ending. She did not suffer at all and just b!tched around for more than half of the novel just because of this sh!t thing called filial piety. For all the times that she deserves to be abandoned, what she got is a sh!t ton of money because filial piety. I did not bother to read the chapters about the grandchildren of MC.

4.5 stars (this half star is reduced because of somethings I find illogical but it didn't affect the overall of the story so far, so fine). The same mary sue and unreasonable setting for the MC but somehow the story is developing naturally in the chapters I read that I'm a little surprised.

... more>>

Miss Su had lived a sheltered life focused on learning the three obediences and four virtues since she was young. She only got out of the house 3 times but she opened a embroidery shop in her last life. She had a weak body to the point that she died because of the cold wind from her window not mention her young age but she learned cooking, embroidery and chinese medicine? (I also don't know what else could pop up) She isn't used to meeting strangers but she accepted her new life and husband she just met easily. Right!! Don't forget the cheat the miraculous spring water.

Except for being a little shy when it comes to her husband, she is like an experienced housewife, no! A super housewife who can almost do anything

PS. the thing that might make some female readers uncomfortable is that era trait of thinking males are superior to females. Neither the MC nor the ML think this way but many people around them believe this, which is actually common at that time, but except for expressing their thoughts occasionally there was no acts that discriminate against females in this novel, at least I didn't see it.


Even with this the story don't look disgusting or crossed my tolerance limit (Maybe my tolerance increased or I no longer care much after reading many tr*sh novels). I want to see how long it'll take for me give up or maybe I can finish it?


Another skill added to arsenal


Gardening and raising flowers


The story still fun to read, it just reminds me of one I read not long ago


First I want to warn other readers that although the MC is mary sue, the story is pure Slice of Life. There no overbearing CEOs, excessive dramatic turn of events or face slapping in the 120 chapters I read.

I don't know about the others but I personally like this story. I got a little bored around chapter 117 so I skipped to c120 since those chapters were just boring narrative fillers without much content. I prefer stories told as dialogues and interactions between characters (or at least someone with good narrative skill) than just being briefly mentioned from a narrator POV so although I like this one I might drop it if the rest of the novel are written in this narrative style


+2 skills


jade identifying and playing guqin


The story still good to read sometimes boring because of the repetitive actions but tolerable

Just 2 things I don't understand and find unnatural (except the water cheat, this thing is totally out of logic and the very existence of the MC)


The mc's embroidery partner just gave them 50% of a department store while what they paid can barely equal 20%

A man they met one time took the MC's husband as an adopted son just after meeting him the second time... is this normal?




The story mentioned at the beginning that the original owner is died but at ch 293 the reborn
Ji yunyun said she was alive in the past and had a son, this made a little uncomfortable because this means that the MC just stole someones life and family.

Another thing that made me unconformable is that to make the MC stand out more the author almost set all the females as villains, other than the MC every female more or less has problems especially the reborn Ji yunyun. originally this could have been a good way to balance the overly OP MC and add some drama or make the story more interesting. But the writer unreasonably chose a sl*t like Ji yunyun and what is worse is that after her comeback she not only didn't improve but become worse, all this to highlight the MC even more. I like op MCs but I read stories to enjoy the interaction between characters not stories where in the whole world only one person is allowed to succeed and others should either follow him/her or die.

If the writer made it that Ji yunyun regretted her actions and tried to fix them or become a better human being in her last life before being reborn, then after her comeback she at least can try to be good to her close family members like her daughter, son and parents for real I wouldn't mind her reborn. The writer could have used this to create some interesting and touching family drama and with her in the opposite side of the MC, she won't look as overly op as now. But what he did really disappointed me, Ji yunyun is a loser sl*t in both her past and current life.


What I said above is just my personal preference, not everyone might agree with it so feel free to ignore it. I still like the story just my impression of it went down a bit. <<less

I don't hate the story, but I can't say I like it. I endured to halfway but the story is very illogical sometimes. Also very cliche as well. The main character was fine in the beginning but gets unlikable slowly. She's not written realistically. She's a rich young lady who's only been outside once in her life but she can speak to people about business, knows how to manage businesses, cooks amazing food (as a rich young lady?? sure she was taught but how many times could she have practiced... more>> with her apparently weak body that required her to be inside for most of her life?). Also, the blatant misogyny is really annoying. There are at least one or two disparaging comments about women in every chapter.

Not to mention that EVERY problem in the book is because of a woman. The sister, sister-in-law, aunty... etc. Also, I know the main character is supposed to be badass and different, but her attitude towards people just comes off as a know-it-all/arrogant. She seems to forget that her knowledge is not because of some innate uniqueness but just that she is a product of her times and the rest of the people are also products of the times they live in. This was a downgrade from BTTS. Again, mediocre at best. <<less

I am honestly obssessed this story. I love how chill the MC is. I enjoy the familial love between her and the ML. Hated some of shameless characters but overall MC and ML stays strong. Theyre earning money theyre humble and helpful to their villagers. A good read!

This story has a beautiful beginning, a very boring middle where this novel loses its identity and the FL fades into background while China as a country and its economic environment comes to foreground, and a disgusting last part with the most annoying youngest SIL being reborn and behaving even worse than before. All for the sake of free money of course, but now with an added layer of insatiable s*xual hunger and multiple lovers, free love even in marriage, etc. Thus, this novel completely lost both its charm and... more>> dignity.

But the beginning is beautiful: a noble young woman from ancient times transmigrates into a fat and unkempt peasant wife from 1980s married to a Chinese soldier and gracefully builds a life and family with him and a dozen of not so easy to appease relatives on both sides. Very nice. As in most of Chinese webnovels of this sort the initial financial success is based on a number of cheats, such as her master level in embroidery skills or the source of spiritual water that makes everyone healthy and makes plants and animals grow fast. <<less

I really love this novel along with the other the author wrote. They are both focused on family and wealth building. Except for me I love this novel more because there is slightly more depth in this one and the twists. Even though a part of it concentrates on the ML's sister it's not too much that gets you bored and is quite interesting as well. The MC is quite talented and for someone like me who prefers reading the 100 chaps kind of novel, I finished this all and... more>> actually cried after finishing it. I had withdrawal from it because I liked it so much. Too cute and heart warming and just right for when you're tired of fast paced novels and want to take it slow and calm. <<less

I just realized that this novel has the same author as the novel " (BTTS) Back to the Sixties: Farm, Get Wealthy & Raise the Cubs"

I have read the novel (BTTS), compared to this novel I prefer novels (BTTS), the characters in the novel are more satisfying for me and I also like MC and the MC family

Even so this novel is also not bad to read, I also thank the translator

Sorry for my bad english 😔

It's not bad per se, but it's quite disappointing. A good mother-in-law turn bad but we have no explanation, although she loves her daughter, but it's like she has been brainwashed. As someone from a conservative time, for her to condone her daughter loose way this much is unbelievable. MC is passive and decent, ML is quite good. The story lose its charm with the blatant display of bias against women. None of the men were punished enough, specially the fourth sister-in-law brother. All in all, he gets messier as... more>> you read and quite boring annoying. <<less

It's actually not bad and more logical than some readers think. And I'm also satisfied with the ending. If you could understand and learn some basic information from MC background you will find that she's just an ordinary virtuos noblelady in her ancient time who had been taught since little to become the perfect wife, mother, noble, and head household. You could say she's the perfect ideal at time, plus she's also the main daughter. So, her OPness is justified. Mainly, because her mother is the real MVP here. Sure,... more>> she's kind of passive in the story, but at least it justified of her background. It doesn't make any sense if she's suddenly like those modern transmigrator bold vicious from modern time and became business tycoon in ancient time. Unless she's already in the modern time for a few years and learn a lot, so it makes sense for her negotiable and business skills along the way. In short, she's careful, and smart.

Oh, her husband is also the real MVP here. He's right and lef hand of MC and sometimes MC became the brain. He never do something without her permission. He's a soldier and has literacy background, so it justified his loyal and decisive action.

I think this is your transmigrator story from poor to rich. No real plot and no real villain. Only annoying characters (especially, fifth sister-in-law and her mother-in-law). But when I think about it, they're actually good people, but they chose wrong path and wrong attitude. In short, s*upid and uneducated.)) It's pretty entertaining to see her self destructed everytime, but annoyed also. And sure, a lot of annoying characters are female, but there are also male characters too. In conclusion, human are annoying creature regardless their s*x. You need to remember this is china in early 1980, you will know that a lot of economic reform is going on and life style are changing so fast from old to new era, some people who were not used to it became poor, and some people who started to do business become rich in full swepth, especially not a lot of people could go to school and have high paying stable job. People want to make a living and make their life better. And they saw an oppurtunity, so why of course they're potraited as greedy or you could say ambitous. And about gender thingy, man better than woman or something like that in discussion. Once again, you need to know MC culture background and her time when she got transmigrated. And it's in China of course very storng with ptriachl roots since a long ago, it's not easy to change from old generation. So in eary chapters you could see how MC kind of bias with men, but then she suddenly change her mindset because the changing era. In short, this novel is the enemy of feminist reader. I want to say more, but all I can say in short, it's pretty entertaining and it's not bad at all. You just need to remember the background of setting she transmigrated from and her original time. Although not explicitly said in the novel, you could guess if you read a lot transmigrator who got transmigrated in ancient time (like me). If you came for business management trope, this is a novel for you. If you're looking for a plot, then I think you need to go. It's slice of life story until the MC dies. <<less

The novel starts fine but gets draggy very quickly. I just couldn't keep reading.

Also the author makes the MC and ML seem like they're angels surrounded by terrible greedy relatives who they willingly take care of. It's quite unrealistic.

I was actually hesitant reading this because yeah I thought it will be too much fantasy since FL got that water. But it was rarely used aside from sending those to plants or animals so yeah it's quite okay. Lol she did not use it for like medicine which was kinda unexpected?

I actually like it except for the part about the 5th child of Ji, since it was kinda long. I want her dead asap lol like yeah some people might do what she did to enjoy her life but... more>> she was really s*upid and I hate what she did to her children so yikes I hate her

Nevertheless, FL was not like the other transmigrator who were really aggressive with the development. She gave ideas, but ML's the one who executed it. Since she's from ancient time so her thoughts and actions were affected. All in all, I had fun reading this. <<less

Slow paced story. Currently giving it a 4, If she gave birth to a daughter, I would have given it a 5.

Ancient woman transmigrated to a married woman in 70s/80s

Married to a soldier who has to retire due to indury. She does not have space but she has spring water flowing from her fingers.

... more>> She used the water to grow trees, vegetables turn it into orchards and expand the business.

It was a typical struggle within extended family, in laws, then issue with the mother in law.

How to grow their business and earn more money.

It's quite good, actually. You also have to think about what era this is and what level of education and upbringing these villagers have grown up with. I like that the husband and wife became rich but never became arrogant and tried to bring the whole village to have a better life. I especially like how they never neglected their nephews and nieces and so they were all empowered when they grew up.

The reborn sister should have had a good life if only she learned how to be humble and be content with what she had. Her sons deserved better. She literally ruined everyone she touches. I feel sorry for the kids. Reading another story by the author where another side character got reborn, she made the most of it, found her ex husband, built her own fortune, and never became arrogant because of her knowledge of the future.

Interesting spin on transmigrated to another time, But the archaic mindsets that are just repeatedly brought up disgusts me a lot. This is supposed to be after China relaxed it's socialist policies but the villagers mindset seems to be stuck in a time before that. They keep harping on about fertility issues being the woman's problem. The harping on that women should not be providing for their maternal family is really cringe, they portray this like the worst sin - it's just not a realistic view of society as ancient... more>> China may have had the idea of married daughters being likes tossed out water but in this setting, modernisation should have the basic decency of acknowledging that women have parents too and they aren't just sold to another family. Like they mention divorce is a thing, but also make it sound like the absolute loss for a woman.

This novel is just rather frustrating to read, the supporting cannon fodder characters are really annoying, it's a lot of drawn out irritating encounters with no real relief. I can't really connect with any character in the story as they all have off putting points.

the sister-in-laws are scheming greedy and just outright trying to squeeze all the money from the parents-in-laws. The parents-in-laws are pushovers. The husband is awol. Her mother is an abusive mother-in-law. Her maternal sister-in-law is a thief. The other one is abused for fertility issues to a ridiculous extent. <<less

at first I was hesitant because it has almost 701 chapters.. its really pretty long... Although there are dull moments, I love reading thr growth of their family's business empire along with the character development. Its literally from rags to riches... its not like others transmigration stories where MC has a cheat and became a multimillionaire in just a short period of time.. here, you will witness how they built their wealth slowly but surely. overall this story is not perfect but its worth reading.
