A sumptuous historical novel set in 18th century Japan. Mitchell explores the clash of cultures with a delicate hand, he evokes the austerity and brutality of an era, and he shows us the quiet few (Japanese and Dutch) who sense that their world has begun to change. A wonderfully immersing book - lose yourself in it for days!
