Mae Li runs away from home and the man she didn't want to marry, when she realizes Chen Zu will marry another girl arranged by the village matchmaker.
With no hope in her life to be able to survive on her own, she meets Ms. Tan, a matchmaker in the city of Shanghai. Mae Li, now Pearl, is taken under Ms. Tan's wings to become the new matchmaker once the old woman dies. She is given a coin that is the "Power" of the matchmaker, in that it will only work if the matchmaker forsakes her own true love in order to bring together others in love. There is also something very secret that the coin can do, but I'm not going to say what it is because I've already given too much away.
The very end of this short story had me crying. The last scene takes place many years later when once again Chen Zu and Mae Li/Pearl meet again. They still love each other and it's a very tender scene. Pearl stays true to her calling as the matchmaker sacrificing her own love for others. But, there is a moment between them that has to do with a pearl comb that made my heart ache. Oh, Heather Moore, you are a master at your craft in creating emotions and making your readers feel deeply for your characters.
This novella is a must read before you begin reading the first of the 12 books that will be coming out in 2016 about The Power of the Matchmaker. Personally, I can't wait to read each and every one.
This sweet, 60 page novella gets 5 sweet stars***** from me!
The Matchmaker doesn't begin as a matchmaker - rather she is a young woman, Mae Li, who runs away from home when the matchmaker in her village decides the man Mae Li loves would be better suited to another woman. Chen Zu, obedient, honorable son that he is, goes along with the matchmaker's and his parents' wishes and marries another young woman. Mae Li runs away from home. Along the way, she encounters hardships and nearly starves.
She is rescued by a woman who actually senses her presence before the two meet in person. Mrs. Tan is a matchmaker in a large city in China where Mae Li has gone to try and get work. Mrs. Tan will teach Mae Li (Pearl) how to become a matchmaker thus preparing her to go forward into her future with a gift which brings her an amazingly long life enabling her to successfully matchmake for many, many years. Pearl has one last meeting with the love from her youth - very touching.
