When Lucy Mary O'Malley impulsively agreed to an arranged marriage with Prince Chang Lee, son of a mandarin, she embarks on a dangerous journey that takes her from Lancashire to the Forbidden City of Peking. Danger awaits in the perfumed court of the Dragon Empress. Only when the Boxer rebels lay siege to the Embassies does Lucy find the courage to fight for her life and her love.
