Mi Nuong hears a beautiful one night, from a man on a boat on the water. She cannot see him clearly since it is dark, but she believes he must be young, handsome and the one she is to marry.She thinks he will come back, but night after night, week after week, he does not return. Mi Nuong becomes weak and ill. Her father learns of the man who sang that night and sends one of his men to find him.I was at the library and this book caught my eye. It was a story I had never read before and although it is very sad, it is also a beautiful story and teaches a wonderful lesson. I enjoyed reading this very much.
