Wild Orchid

A Retelling of "The Ballad of Mulan"

Wielding a sword as deftly as an embroidery needle, Mulan is unlike any other girl in China. When the emperor summons a great army, each family must send a male to fight. Tomboyish Mulan is determined to spare her aging father and bring her family honor, so she disguises herself and answers the call.

But Mulan never expects to find a friend, let alone a soul mate, in the commander of her division, Prince Jian. For all of Mulan's courage with a bow and arrow, is she brave enough to share her true identity and feelings with Prince Jian?

I must not let my father go to fight, I thought. I will not.

And so I would do the only thing I could to protect both my father's life and our family's honor: I would go to fight in his place. I would prove myself to be my father's child, even if I was a daughter.
