Kay Chen Smith, descendent of the Wing Chun legacy, discovers an ancestral book that she prays will give her clues to change her current fate. In the book she discovers the birth of the martial art, Wing Chun, developed by the Buddhist nun, Ng Mui. The true secrets of this deadly martial art are passed to the first female ancestor in her family. This riveting story transports Kay Chen through the ferocious melee during the Ming Dynasty and the Boxer Rebellion to the one woman who will forever alter the course of her own life and that of her country; Kai Chen Boussard. Kai Chen is a blend of Chinese and American, a social outcast where mixed lineage is considered blasphemous and worthy of death. Wing Chun, meaning FOREVER SPRINGTIME, will be Kai Chen's salvation and curse in a saga of political power, social upheaval, broken vows, unrelenting revenge, and a bittersweet love. This story will also alter Kay Chen Smith's destiny more than she could have envisioned. A tale spanning from the great land of China to New York's China Town where the Triad and Tong influence both countries with opium trade and gang wars, FOREVER SPRINGTIME will change many lives.
