Walter is twelve years older than Grace, and as sour as the rain he studies- he and Grace are at a particularly troubled point in their marriage. Their tightly circumscribed visit, however, becomes a journey infinitely less tidy and more complex as Grace falls forever out of love with her husband and very much in love with this country and its culture. In the chaos of the Beijing streets and in the home of her new friends Dr. Yu and her son Zaofan, Grace finds the web of life shes been too lost to perceive. Time you spend in the past and future is time you spend alone, Dr. Yu tells her.

But between them there is a middle kingdom, both feet planted here.
