This book is 2.5 stars. Although the book is meant to be fictional, the majority of the people and events in the book are fact-based. The locations are breath-taking and so well described that it’s easy to find yourself absorbed in the book from the first couple of pages; a mean feat that most authors do not manage. It’s obvious that the authour has spent a lot of time researching 1800s Japan; one of the many pieces of evidence lies in her elaborate paragraphs on kimonos. Sadly enough I was bored after the 1st 3rd of the book. The plot was just not engaging. I kept at it as I wanted to know more about that era in Japan.
