The ancient walls of the Forbidden City beckon Vivvie to imagine the past and wonder if the man she dreams of might be right here in Beijing.Told in two voices, Bound in Blue visits the world of a silk-merchants daughter in 17th century China and an American studying abroad in 20th century Beijing.

How the two are bound gradually unfolds as Xiao Qing navigates her way into an arranged marriage amidst the turmoil of Manchu occupation and Vivvie discovers a strange familiarity in a land far from home where the excitement of a budding romance and a burgeoning pro-democracy movement ends in terror.Their stories tell the tale of one souls journey from a ruling familys estate in 1644 to the Tienanmen Square Massacre of 1989.
