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

Transmigration? A Chong Xi Marriage? Sickly husband? How worse can this get?

Mo Qian Xue now lives in a soddy, destitute, small house with broken furnitures. The grass had grown wild and unruly from lack of proper care. The rice pot in the kitchen, it’s left empty. Well, this mess seemed quite manageable, however, why is it they only have one quilt in the house?

Not only does she serve her husband food and refreshments during the day, does she need to make sure he’s well “fed” at night too?

“It’s getting late now… we should go to bed. Said the sickly husband. She simply closed the door, turned off the lights, and went straight to sleep.

“If you dare move, I’ll kick you out of the bed!” She threatened.

In the end, the man still managed to wrap himself around her no matter how she resisted. The sickly husband wasn’t as weak as he appeared to be!

Mo Qian Xue worked hard to become rich. She built workshops, opened factories, one aided by her sickly husband towards prosperity. Fortunately, she could live a peaceful life far from bickering relatives, but then, much to her dismay, she still had to deal with the villagers knocking on her door.

So they want her money? They want her position as a wife? Since when was she, Mo Xian Que easy to bully?! They want to make her lose face? Alright, let them come a little closer then… give them a…. slap!

It started out kind of promising with the FL struggling to live, make money, while supporting her newly married and sick husband. It was amusing with the various ways the FL made money. Like making tofu, selling recipes, wood carving and etc. However, once all the secret identities get revealed, all the political intrigues took over the interesting business aspects of the story. The romance was ok, but I really got tired of all the guys who fell in love with the FL. It just got old fast with the... more>> amount time spent on guys moping over her. The political intrigues and plots weren't developed too well. Once you find out all the reasons for the political intrigues, past murders, and etc; it really seemed ridiculous to find all the reasons for it. The role of the secret armies of the FL never really came into play as well. In the end, everything sort of got resolved, but in a really lackluster way. Not only the FL, but all the side characters got their love matches as well. Overall, it was an ok story with just a regular transmigrated business woman who seems more focused on making money. Some things didn't feel like they got resolved, like the ML's internal drama with this grandmother. It just got brushed off with a line or two in the end. And the Emperor's action at the end was also anticlimactic. It didn't really get resolved. Basically, everyone just left and that's how it ended. It was sort of short ok read. Not too romantic, and the ML barely saves the FL at all for most of the story. She handles everything herself in any problem. <<less

Although the main character is great, her husband is honestly really useless. Kind of makes you mad seeing all the effort she's putting into things while dragging along deadweight.

Edit: 2 stars--welp, I'm all the more disappointed for having been so thoroughly fooled. Deleted my initial very positive review. If I could change the rating to 2 stars, I would. The ML is ... more>>

just another garden variety sociopath--and more creepy than most in that his jealous fits read as complete lunacy in how quickly they disappear, no matter how extreme, and the MC loses all previous sense and forgives his behavior with ease. That, and the servants become creepy af, because they just obey him with not particular qualms or concern.

It was really enjoyable to start, but man, did it ever fall off the rails hard. It's like the characters turned into completely different people by chapter 86 and not ones I like at all. I feel like an idiot for wasting my time.

Not for me but I'm not a fan of the typical shojo/josei anyway. I read it for the business-building part but that becomes secondary to the overwhelming distractions by non-business-related drama and plot events later, starting about 50 chapters in.

Contrary to the tone of the synopsis, it turns out she doesn't really have much agency once that drama happens. She stays in the dark while getting schemed against constantly. I enjoyed it for what it was previously, but right now it's a story about a bunch of men fighting over... more>> her and their feelings. <<less

The main character is boringly perfect in every way. She has an unrealistic set of random skills that she is perfect at, which the author obviously decided to give her on the spur of the moment. While there is at least there is no evil step-sister like so many of these transmigration stories have, there is an unending stream of ordinary people to triumph over unnecessarily.

The parts I enjoy are her interactions with her husband. Since they are from different eras, they sometimes have realistically different perspectives on life. But... more>> they do get sappy quite quickly. <<less

Talk about useless husband.

... more>>

Seriously? The author writes more about the other guys interacting with MC rather than her husband. I know things don't always go as planned for the main couple but when MC gets drugged and goes all over second ML I just got so irritated. Stars aligned and it happened. Ok, it didn't go all the way but wtf. If you're reading this and thinking that I'm sounding very whiny, you're probably right. There's just something off with the scene that I can't explain right now but the whole thing feels too contrived.


Chapters are long which is nice but I'm at chapter 80 and have yet to see major character development which is worrying. Nothing is really happening so far. At this point, it's even as if the author doesn't know what to do with the ML. Poor husband.

I'm hoping the story picks up. Coz, as Fathom's review mentioned, guys falling for MC got old fast. Their moping and longings are stuff I don't really care for. I mean, what's the point of that? Oh, right. It's to make the MC seem more attractive to the audience, which, I gotta say, is not really working for me. <<less

Interesting. I wish I could read more chapters. Story about modern and Independent woman whom her soul transmigrated in ancient world. She woke up ended up married to someone she didn't know. The sickly village's teacher now become her husband.

For her own survival, not being sold as a slave. She must keep her husband alive. They both have secret background. Can these two perfect strangers, force married by fate, will falling in love to each other?

Typical transmigration story where the MC just happens to have the perfect job skill or talent to make money. Would have been better if they left out the r*pey minor league villains.

So far.. it's A great transmigation story, where the MC 'disregard' (ignore/dont care/not curious) the 'original-body identity...

Unlike some TYPICAL transmigation character, im glade that She's not stupid.. and continue being her-self, enjoying the 'strugling-yet-peacefull-life', without minding about the original-body's mystery-oldbusiness-politic-hate-revange-blabla... since she's way tooooo buzy with her present life, caring for her business... also to take care sickly husband..

2nd, Unlike other TYPICAL transmigation story... in here NOT ALL MALE falling-head-over-heels for the MC.

... more>> Third, the MC gain FEMALE FRIEND (Again... unlike other TYPICAL novel)

4th, (unlike TYPICAL ML) although the ML are handsome... he's not 'too over-bering'.. ALSO.. There no such "ohh-He's-such-a-refine-Handsome-GOD (?) -where-the-Whole-Continent-WOMEN-CHASE-FOR-HIM#hakpuui# character.. hehe <<less

Very nice story. Both the female and the male lead get married while unconscious.

Instead of fighting every step of the way they try to make do with what they have. Female lead is very smart and independent. She tries to make her life and gain a living but at the same time wants to get along with her husband. Husband is also very loyal and nice.

The novel is quite interesting so far, and kudos to the translator who is able to both translate and keep the readability of the author's original words. Since this is actually quite difficult to do when translating to English, just wanted show appreciation for the translator's efforts. Thank you!

FL is OP, making tofu, carving wood, I guess, she can do a lot of things in the following chapters. I think MC knows FL very well. When he sees FL carving wood, he just accompanies her. I really like this kind of interactions.

I was pissed off by the behaviors of Sister Zhao. She is a shameless rubbish. I root for FL. She must punished those bad guys or, she will suffer losses. I can’t wait to see how FL slap the face of Sister Zhao.

The plot is super awesome. Normally, when MC said to FL “Get Out”, FL will leave MC. The FL in this book is so smart. She notices the abnormal condition of MC and does not misunderstand him. Looking forward to more chapters.

In the chapter17, I begin to like MC. At first, I just think he is too weak and only FL supports the whole family. It seems that MC experienced miserable thing in the past and needs time to recover. FL will cure the pain in MC’s heart. This really arouses my interest. I can’t wait to see what will happen in the next.

Beautifully written and a modern FL. I can't wait for more! It’s easy to read, translations quality is good and the updates are fast. I love the MC. She seems to have an easygoing personality. Hopefully the novel will stay good.

This is a promising book. It is awesome and interesting. I really like this type. FL is smart and independent. Up to now, MC’s personality is not charming. I think MC will change himself in the following chapters. I hope I can read more chapters.

I only read this 10 chapter so far, yet I'm hooked. I've binged read many transmigration novels the good, the bad, the mediocre. I like how the author depicts the ancient and modern culture differences and MC's rational attitude. It's a slice of life story and it's going at a medium pace. Translation's a fan translation and not yet licensed so updates won't be daily but I have high hopes for it, aside from minor typos and error (which all decent human do), the grammatical flow is nice and quite... more>> easy to read and comprehend.

If you like:

- professional modern girl who could utilize her modern ability in ancient times

- diligent character

- food porn

- farming

- tsundere ancient man (well it's still on ch 10)

- business management

- to be a virtuous wife or eight treasure trousseau or transmigrator meets reincarnator or manga by Kyouko Hikawa, you would like this. <<less
