About the novella

On the Train is a love story that depicts the deep and genuine feelings between two ordinary young people from the county. The novella also describes a picture illustrating the enormous community of migrant workers. They are by nature kind-hearted, calm and well-composed, steadfast and tenacious in the face of adversity. They are happy and optimistic and more inclined to find the beauty of life than those well-to-do people. The reader, through the words, may expect to feel the author’s sensitive observation in her imagination and the vividness in her expressions, thus the warmth and sweetness of life.
