In 1927, during the Early Republic of China times, a smart young woman wants to continue expanding her knowledge.  This beautiful and elegantly-made drama focuses on her struggle and story within the Xuan family and events in China during this turbulent period in history.   Shen Bi Yun (Zhang Meng) decides to put her personal happiness aside to marry into the wealthy Xuan family, which owns the ancient Book Converging Pavilion, a four-hundred-year-old library of rare volumes in Jiangnan. Her motives for joining the Xuan Family are many, and not entirely centered on the great library.   The fourth son, Xuan Xiao Ji (Han Dong), takes pity on Bi Yun and tries to help her escape the family and its old-fashioned ancestral rules, but Bi Yun is determined to stay.   Can Bi Yun withstand the internal struggle for power and money within the Xuan family in her quest to open up the family library to the people?   “A Scholar Dream of Woman” is a critically-acclaimed 2015-2016 Chinese drama series.
