Shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year 2009.

 

Straddling the civil war in Japan in the mid-19th century, this is the story of an adopted girl, Sachi, who rises to be the chief concubine of the Shogun. The ladies of the court are protected from the extraordinary upheavals in the country but eventually the palace is destroyed and the ladies scattered. There is a lot of history here, particularly social, which one would expect from this author who has written many books about Japan and its culture. This is her first novel.


Comparison: Arthur Golden, Anchee Min, Lisa See.
