Description

Growing up in rural Japan in 1861, Sachi has always felt different, her pale skin setting her apart. When she is 11, a princess passes through her village, sweeping her off to the women's palace in Edo, home to 3000 women and only one man - the young shogun. Sachi is chosen as his concubine. But Japan is changing.

As civil war erupts, Sachi flees for her life. Rescued by a rebel warrior, she finds unknown feelings stirring within her. But before she dare dream of a life with him, Sachi must unravel the mystery of her own origins - a mystery that encompasses a wrong so terrible that it threatens to destroy her.

Interesting but kind of slow

Although the story is interesting and the narrator is doing a very good job, it gets kind of boring. The reason is that there is very little dialog between the characters. A lot of describing and thinking, but not very much interacting between the characters and that makes me lose interest after a while. Listened through the book though but felt "finally!" when it was done.

Facinating

I enjoyed the glimpse into a foreign time long gone. Predictable happy ending, but then again, what's wrong with a happy ending?

Choose another

This book might have been saved by a different narrator. I'm not usually bothered by narrators, but when speaking for female characters the narrator spoke as if she was 6 years old ruining the meaning of the context. I had to work EXTREEMLY hard to finish this book. Disappointing listen.

Yes! This book is a wonderful work of historical fiction that opens the komodo and provides an evocative glimpse into the secret social structure of the Shogun era. The story is captivating, the characters compelling and you are quickly drawn into the adventure unfolding during a pivotal time in Japanese history. What a ride!
