Publisher's Summary

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.

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