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

In her previous life, Li Qinghe married into the Xu family with pomp and splendor but was treated coldly and ignored by everyone in the household she married into. She eventually died of an illness to make way for her husband’s white moonlight.

However, she woke up again, this time with prior knowledge of herself being just a cannon fodder in a sweet romance novel. In the original novel, Qinghe had saved the male protagonist’s life and then asked him to marry her as repayment. She then made the lovers’ lifetime a hell because of her jealousy. Now that she had returned to the past and been given a second chance at life, Li Qinghe decided to change her way of living. She resolved to stay away from the male and female protagonists. It was still important to save his life for the story to continue, but that kindness would be exchanged for silver, and she would leave instead.

But unexpectedly, the original male protagonist was not reconciled to this and rushed to become entangled with her. She had a violent temper and rolled up her sleeves, intending to hit him. Another man beside her saw this and felt very distressed. Hurriedly taking her hand and squeezing it gently, he said, “Be good. If you’re not careful, your hand will hurt. You should stand aside and let me do such menial work.”

In his last life, Zhou Chengkang had built and maintained a large tombstone in front of Li Qinghe’s grave for his entire life after her death. He regretted not expressing the feelings in his heart to her many times. He then died, still carrying that regret.

When he opened his eyes again, he found that he was reborn and had returned to the time before she had gotten married to Xu Changjie. The beautiful lady was again alive and graceful, drawing at his heartstrings. He couldn’t help but want to take her into his arms.

This time, he won’t miss his chance again.

Double rebirth; a story of a husband and wife farming together and living with scums.

Pre-Review Comments (jumped around with MTL chapters but caught up to 55 translated ch)

  • MTL-ableness: I would give it a 2.5/5. Lots of pronouns/names getting mixed up, but you can understand the general plot/conflict.
  • Decent translations: I wouldn't say it's flawless but it's definitely readable. There's some odd syntax here and there, and even comments on the bottom would clear up certain sentences. So, not the best sentence structures but still understandable. No translator notes and helpful footnotes are featured.
  • Flat romance: I realized early into this story that it's not really romantic. The writing is very matter-of-fact and blunt. I mean, there are sweet interactions bw the couple but it's not dog food or anything, lol. The romance is super light and instead the story focuses more on the FL trying to have a better life and making better decisions in this lifetime.
    • When she gets reborn she's literally a harpy (fun way!). She's unabashed with her comments. OgFL and ogML of the 'book' she reads after her first lifetime's death are treated as side characters and just other villagers. In general FL looks out for herself and the people who treat her well, but will retaliate if people go against her.
    • The ML also rebirthed, as we know, but it's not a major plot point. They both find each other again (I like the commenter that called him a bunny, bc we first meet him when he jumps the FL's fence to see her lol) and are pro-active in leading happy and successful lives as farmers. He's a major simp (good way!) for the FL and treats her like a queen, lol.
    • If you dig too deep about their relationship it falls apart quickly. Like, why did the ML like the FL so much in the first lifetime that he would build a house next to her tombstone? And the only reason why the FL sought out the ML in this lifetime is bc she knew he cared for her even until the end? But past this lack of passion/depth, they are quite comfortable and supportive with the other when they become a couple. In general, it's a healthy relationship.
    • Also a note that the FL is 14 when the story first starts, ML is 17, they get married a year later and the rest of the story is just following their farm life.
  • Village slice-of-life: the major conflicts of the story surround the happenings of the other villagers and people trying to be greedy. Seriously, money is a HUGE instigator of drama lol. It's kinda shallow but hey, it makes for good entertainment. Plus, the FL is never a push-over so it's very satisfying to see her (and the ML) deal with unreasonable people. We're just here for the show, lol.
  • Overall this is a light farming novel that I found fulfilling just because the main couple was able to successfully have a happy life this timeline and nothing was ever too stressful. I'll be back in a year or so when the translations finish!

No drama between the couple. This is basically a story of how 2 people who were reborn to before the key event that led to the end of their first life. Their decisions changed the course of their story, and this novel shows how the changes affected not only their life, but of those around them. Butterfly effect causes a ripple to unmask the real personalities of the people in the couple's lives. Their hard work and strong will when it comes to the choices they make is admirable. And... more>> the journey to get to where they are is an interesting read.

I MTLed this, so I am anticipating the translation so I can read it again. 😁 <<less

this story is the most realistic rebirth story of the ones I've read so far.

my take on the story:-

there is no drama between the couple. the FL is calm and collected. Instead of thinking of revenge and wasting her time she decided to make up for all the regrets she had in her previous life. she really had a good time in this life. she was not the miracle FL, where whatever she does is awesome and has millions for fans (or admires like in other rebirth novels).

the story and... more>> plot are really good and I was never bored while reading the novel. and also this is the first rebirth novel I have read where the FL does not marry an (invincible/amazing/overbearing..... etc) guy. she marries a person who really loved her even though he and his family is so poor.

throughout the novel the ML remains as who is not a noble or a big wealthy rich merchant. He is shown as farmer who loved his wife and family dearly. what I most loved is that the ML is shown a little very close to reality and that the none of the character are connected to royal family or they were actually nobles but due to some mishap they had to or became peasants.

this story is a must read!!! and truly different from those regular stereotypical rebirth stories. god!!! I was soo damn frustrated with those rebirth novels where whatever the FL does is amazing/mind blowing and wins millions of admires and etc. this novel is like breathing some fragrance in a dump yard.

the most characters in the novel are not s*upid and think logically, there were no unnecessary brainless characters. In short summary this is a A relaxed story with ancient background which basically revolves around the leads and is serious with no dog blood plot. Recommended!! <<less

I usually don't like slice of life type stories, but I liked this one. There was conflict without any of the annoying misunderstandings. And the romance was really sweet.

The story is very good. Give her a chance. I promise you will not go wrong.
Li ChinHe is a good girl, as is Chenkang too. He really loves his wife very much and protects her with everything he has. He is dedicated to her, not at the level of blind donorship, but by sacrificing himself, helping when he needs it, providing protection... It's a delight to read their interaction.

Li Chin He is decisive when she wants something, both in her past and in her current life. When she puts... more>> something in her head she does it, it doesn't matter if someone says otherwise and tries to dissuade her. She values ​​Chenkang very much and does her best to give him a good life hehe.

We have good secondary characters and their stories are developed. They are not simply there as a background for the protagonists to stand out. It's a living and complex world.

Without Li Chinhe to stimulate the feelings of (the protagonists) their story takes a very crazy spin kkkk it was refreshing to watch the downfall.

Read the story. I read it and didn't regret it. <<less

I enjoyed reading this. Good novel!

"But unexpectedly, the original male protagonist was not reconciled to this and rushed to become entangled with her ruthlessly" This description is not right, the OML didn't entangled with her at all. He did spoke to her a few times tho but he only spoke to her ONCE about how he regretted choosing the OFL. After that they didn't even cross path with each other again. There's no ruthlessly entangled. I only read MTL tho so maybe I missed something.
overall I enjoy reading... more>> this so much. My time was not wasted at all! <<less

Ment to be a 4star

Nice read. A true slice of life.

The there was literally 1 paragraph of the ex coming over and asking if she regretted anything. Other than that our MC was spectacular at ignoring the ex and hid lover.

One issue I do have with the mtl is that you can't really tell how. Any years pass from a certain event. By the end of the story you won't be able to tell how old the majn characters are. Other than that in this story you find out that... more>> no family is perfect even when the man is perfect. Our MC married out and she took that roll very seriously but she was also her father's only child which she took seriously as well and it wasn't to common for a female heir atleast thats what it felt like from her mother-in-law. At the end of the day this story is a nice change of pallette between all the other crazy stories. Sit down and relax <<less

The female lead walks around with a chip on her shoulder as if the whole world owes her. Decisive FLs are good but sometimes she comes off as borderline impolite. There are several attempts to make the sporting characters multilayered with their back-stories but it all kind of falls flat because the characters come off s 2-dimensional.

I like the story so far, it seems interesting without being unrealistic. At first I was really confused by the summary bc I thought the ML was the scum husband who only realized he loved her after she died. Instead the ML is a side character who secretly loved her despite her being married to another man. This novel isn't one about revenge, but living your life well and making good choices. If you can get past the fluff about reincarnation and transmigration, it's really just a solid slice of... more>> life novel. <<less

I'm not sure what time period this is, maybe this was set in the year 1900. I'm not really familiar with the history of China, but they use silver and copper as currency and the relationship between men and women are not too upright like in the ancient dynasties of China. Now setting that time frame, this is the most realistic Slice of Life that is not in the modern setting that I have read so far. The reincarnation part is really just letting them live again, it does not... more>> involve revenge or face-slapping. They are just grateful for this second life.

Our MC is such an unbothered queen. She knows what's important and she won't compromise for the sake of familial relationships. She will not let herself be at the losing end. She's headstrong, very powerful, and an ideal mother. It also helps that ML loves her so much that all of their belongings are under the name of MC. He will always take MC's side no matter who's in opposition. The characterization in this novel is so well done.

The only thing I did not like was the ending chapter. It was so lackluster and I did not even realize that it was the ending until I saw " (end of text)." It looked like the other chapters. But, you can't ignore how well-written the previous chapters are, so I had to let that go and give this one 5 stars. <<less

It is a pleasing slice of life with intricate family relationships even if I would have loved more face slapping. But our mains are practical people whose main motivation is to built a good life without golden finger or heaven defying talents. It’s just a 4 for me because the lasts chapters are a bit bland and you can feel that it’s the tidying up of the main story threads. It would be interesting though to have some follow up on some side characters

Be warned there is NO sugary sweetness in this WN. The MC is edgier than a Japanese MC. Other characters (apart from the MC) are realistic and are not bad for the heck of it or to lift MC up. But MC lacks emotion to the point where it feels that she is just a string of letters in this WN. The author is mostly of the opinion that being realistic and boring are one and the same.

The WN is taxing, boring and well....... forgettable.

Finally, a rebirth story with real farming, no princes or royal family messes and a sweet love story of two people who had a second chance to get the good life they wanted and deserved.
