She woke up from her sleep to the divorce papers that the original owner’s husband tossed at her.

Shu Yan picked up the document and took a look. She gets the house and the savings, but not the car.

Oh! And her son and daughter.

She had been a single woman in her 30’s in her previous life, and now she’s a mother?

How exciting is that?

She searched her memories. Two million dollars in savings. How much is two million dollars in the 90s?

What’s a husband? The other woman can have him. I’m taking the money and my instant son and daughter to go and enjoy ourselves!

i personally liked it, it's hard to find the genre really. It's not perfect but the beginning is very realistic and u really feel her pressure and pain. As the story progresses she gets unexpectedly rich but it's not unreasonable. Of course she met the right people but also because she took the right action. The novel is more about economic development than romance or childcare. Once again it's a career and money based plotline so prepared for exactly that! But, it isn't lacking in either of those too ... more>> (again very realistic romantic development and child raising) <<less

I was supposed to rate it 4.5 but I realized that this isnt your usual transmigration story, most trnasmigration story here either takes place in ancient china or another 20th century modern, interstellar. This is the first one I encounter 1990's it was quite a new experience for me. I read it in one sitting from 7 pm to 1 am.

Of course some parts made me uninterested but it was only because I'm still new to 1990's era. This was great, if it werent then I wouldn't be able to... more>> finish it in one sitting and wouldn't be reviewing it right now. Most of you have probably read my reviews on bl and other shoujo romance.

I really recommend this novel. Whenever fuyu neko releases a new novel I would immediately read it and if I like it then I would machine translate it. I think there's only one novel that she translates that I dont read. Getting back to the review, THIS ONE REALLY SHOWS EMPOWERMENT TO WOMEN.

It's not bias to women because it also shows the flaws and everything

I like how the authordidnt beautify the female lead and inteadshowed the process of how she thinned and how she cleared the spot on her face


The ml


I like how the ML isnt the usual overbearing president that is otherworldly handsome, although he is handsome but it didn'tover shadowed his character


All characters have flaws and not one dimensional. Its cute how I imagien the story as I read it, retro style, old school, ohhh the good old days <<less

My only compliant is that the translator has broken up 6 chapters into 22 chapters. I assume this is to speed out releases, I thought the original author just wrote super short awkwardly ended chapters. It was only when I went to the raws and MTL them I realized what was going on. The story flows much better as it was originally intended. My recommendation is to ignore this translation until there is a few dozen "chapters" to read at a time so you can read two or three chapters... more>> as the author intended. <<less

Good novel! Not too dramatic but since we're modernized and not familiar with the 90's in China, you can be super biased. So you'll get really sad cuz of daughters being sold for money. Original host is very pitiful. I'm glad FL fulfilled her wishes and gave her 2 children a good life and a grand wedding that she never had so her relatives can finally notice her. Since she's just a daughter no one paied attention to her.

Karma is a b*tch. The ex-husband and his "moonlight" got bad endings.

... more>>

Ya'll, I love how the FL swiftly destroyed their future careers in just a couple of chapters. She took all his money/assets/properties and had her 3rd cousin to be in the same career path and suppressed him all sides. She also spread their pictures to the girl's parents and job so she doesn't get her position in the future. I was kinda sad how the novel FL was just gone like that. She got aborted and LJJ, the novel FL's mother damaged her body so she can't get preggo anymore and the ex is a SCUM all the way. He ended up getting together someone 10 yrs older than him SMH. LJJ got arrested!!


FL is straightforward and very generous. She helps girls who needs an escape from the backwards thinking and helping her friends with their divorce. She's not the damsel in distress kind of girl. I mean she got help in someway but everything was so smooth sailing. The problems that just popped up was because of her parents and ex was thinking of trying to take away her son

(ended up getting another younger girl pregnant so he forgot about it.)

. She gets sad a lot since her parents from the original world are still alive :C

ML is cute and caring. He's the rare type of species in that era. Since first hand witnessing his family crumbling, he vowed he'll do better. Not how other people let other people's nasty behavior influence him. He didn't really appear until later in the novel and he pursued her really quickly cuz she said how they're both old enough and didn't do the "you chase me, I chase you." BS.

The antagonists come and go. Like 1 chapter and they poof. Its a really good read to pass time! Honestly the novel picture best describes the whole novel cuz damn, everything went smooth sailing and she just throws money everywhere lmfao. 10/10. <<less

I absolutely love this story. There is zero bullshit, every character is mature, all actions are reasonable and there is no mindless antagonists. Sure, they're petty and selfish, but they make sense. Also, the main leads are good people who reach out to help others, which is a plus for me.

And I actually ship the main couple! The romance in novels (that I read) usually is just some cute interactions for fun, but I really wanted these two to get together and I was not disappointed, although I would've liked... more>> to see more interaction between the characters and less about management (which was ridiculously smooth). <<less

Story about a divorced single parent woman in her mid 20's venture in business management. All trouble came and forth starting from the closest kin, parent; ex family; land lord; neighbor; business rival; even in-law family.

... more>>

ML is a scarred face tough looking guy whose ex ARMY that once jailed cuz misunderstanding and miscommunication for killing a rapist. He also the owner of the largest Security Company in the country (when his kids became adult, the company already became No.1 in the world with it's member were all ex soldier, some were ex-soldier who disability)

MC kids were adorable. The eldest daughter was obedient and serious girl, the younger son was.... well, just a baby that need to coaxing (and threated cuz often making MC headache in her early periode of moving + in diet program). In the end he became a soldier in his dad old camp cuz of broken heart. The youngest son whose born wit ML are in the end of story became a HIpHOP dancer idol (at this time very likely already in 2010's era).

MC business were : a shop which selling woman cloth targeted to mid-hi end customers (give away to her Subs later cuz she was way too buzy) ; a half share of world class reknown underwear company (later inherited to her daughter) ; 60-70% share of first world smartphone maker company (as CEO, later inherited to broken heart son after he back from enlisted in army).

FL is the b*tch. She's the best b*tch. If she were to be transmigrated/reincarnated villainess, she would be way more savage and ruthless than the original--but still survive the execution and punishment.

She's kind to the children, but not excessively. The children have good behaviour, not too unruly, but they are children. Sometimes they could be unreasonable and annoying, I find myself want to ass whoop that brat.

I have only read until there. No sign of ML's appearance yet. She's still focusing on having a better life for her family, and... more>> the narrative is all about money management. If you want to read full fledged romance from the start, maybe this one is not for you.

Oh and I feel it's necessary to mention FL's third cousin. He's awesome.

Translation is also very enjoyable. <<less

This story has really good world-building plot, how the MC restarts her life in another city with her two children, and how she started her own business, met both the wrong and right person, and really reflect the society. There's not much conflict in the story but I like how the issues are not exaggerated rather it likely resembled the society in rl. Definitely a recommended read. Oh, it's more of a josei romance hehe.

The translation of the novel is very good. I like how the story gets straight to leaving her husband instead of dragging the story too long on that part. MC isn't too unreasonable so far as she's just trying to protect herself and her children, and in that process get back at her ex-husband for all the crap he's done to them. Her ex-husband deserved it. Since nobody will be on her side, even her family, she only did what she needed to.

She eventually starts a new life while trying... more>> to learn how to handle having two children. It's going to be an interesting journey, BUT the journey after she left her husband is moving very, very slowly. Each chapter is basically a step by step explanation of how she's looking for a place to rent, a place for school, etc. It's so slow. <<less

I have mixed feelings about this novel. It has its pros and cons. As the story progresses, you may begin to become bored since it focuses more on the mc's road to becoming a successful businesswoman. She cares about her children, but she doesn't really interact with them much once her business begins to grow. However, that's what makes this novel more realistic. She's a single mom who decided to open a business to raise her children, but ends up hiring a nanny to raise her children when life became... more>> too busy and stressful. She's pretty normal compared to other MCs who have golden halos and there's hardly any drama, besides the greedy people in this novel. Her family sucks, but that doesn't make her unique because almost all the families mentioned are equally horrible. The ML is a really great and lovable character despite his fierce appearance. The development of their relationship was natural and there was no "love at first sight" which is a good thing. <<less

Heartwarming, cute, and inspirational novel.

... more>>

The main character (mc) transmigrated into a novel she finished reading as the wife of a somewhat rich but scum cheating husband. Used her intelligence and connections to obtain most of the money & property shared between their husband and wife, then happily divorced. MC took her two young children and started over in another city. Successfully started a business, became a billionaire, then met a handsome, mature, and caring veteran to be her husband.


A very easy-going novel, some drama, and cute scenes, no antsy plots.

Of course, the original female lead and scum husband got what they deserved in the end. <<less

I mtled this till the end. Its super worth it.

Modern MC transmigrated to the 90's. Divorced her husband and takes away half of his properties. Goes somewhere to start clothing business. Whats so funny about this is that she helped couple of women to have divorce. I mean, in that era men are more valued than women, its very sad how your parent can treat you like a merchandize just to make sure their son will have a good life.

The MC is not annoying, she's the non bullsh*t type. I like her, I also like the ml, though he is not the best but he is still good in my criteria. The three children had a good life.

A single parent story!!

And it's done......... er in a good 90s way! (tho I dunno anything about 90s china).

A big portion of the story is about business, from small clothing store to mega billioner. From an ugly no money (only alimony) short single mother to a fantastic pretty (dont ask me how, but we all know this kind of novel MC cannot be ugly, tanned and short) strong business woman.

The funny thing is almost all women there have trouble with derailed cheating husband or rotten parents. Girl power is real... more>> here! <<less

This is actually quite different from other transmigration novels... the author didn't beautify the FL and there's was no omnipotent ceo....

i started reading it bcoz of the business management tag...i love stories where females own and manage business... anyway It is actually a slice of life kinda novel where the journey of FL is shown... how she grew attached to the kids, struggled and HUSTLED

If u have time do give this one a try

Well coming back and seeing so many good reviews feel good.

I have read this novel when first updated on nu, at that time I thought many won't like it as it has very less romance but I enjoyed it.

Novel is more like slice of life. It's fun to read novels with less romance and more on FL becoming stronger by her own efforts.

At start her son was a bear child, used to roll on floor. MC would left him like that cough gave me tricks on how to handle bear... more>> niece...

Her daughter at start always have less self esteem, it was heartwarming to see her growing up as a confident woman.

Funny tidbit, both children of MC married gentle personality partners, I guess maybe MC was "domineering" so both of them went for gentle ones.

MC son got heartbroken as he has hidden his origins and the girl went for rich guy. When that girl came back, knowing MC son is rich, tried to get back with him plus telling son to get MC clothing company, how could he let his sister take away. But son was all grown up and he told her it's his mom choice and he supports his sister.. MC son's wife was adorable one and she was like everything is good but they have so much money. <<less

The story is good overall. Not the greatest story, by all means, but one I don’t regret reading.

What truly made me giggle was that the city she moved to had a staggering amount of divorcees. Like, staggering. Well, I’m exaggerating, of course, but there were quite a few that I can recall.

And although there are things that I could nitpick at, I’d rather not get into that or my review would turn into an essay. So 4/5 stars (unless I rethink the rating) and would recommend to casual readers for... more>> a good pastime book. <<less

This is an interesting novel that mainly focuses on the MC and her title as a working divorced single mother of 2 children. MC is a hard-working woman who just wants to gain enough money to live a peaceful life with her children, the children are cute, ML is human-like and not clichè and let's not forget that the Fuyu Neko is doing a good job at translating this novel (altho I bridge read it in Chinese w/Google as I was curious on how it ended)

The problem is that... more>> near the middle of the novel MC put her both children aside to focus more on her job and the ML, so for the rest of the story her children will rarely appear on the chapters.

I'm here mainly because of the childcare tag and the meng selling so for this reason, I didn't give this novel full stars. <<less

I am a huge fan of how she handles her love life and all but the her early interaction with food threw me waaay off. I kinda understand as going from really skinny to an undesirable weight at once is offputting. But damn she lighter than me and calling herself fat D: I got no chonks. Idk if its the asian physique or whatever but it's a little hard to read about. So maybe my review is biased lol
