Wonderful Book

by LaurelDay (WorldCat user published 2007-06-19) Excellent Permalink
It took me a long time to get around to reading this book, but once started - I found it fascinating. I love Japanese history and it really gives you an interesting insight into the ladies of the night.

A great novel

by ?? (WorldCat user published 2008-06-13) Excellent Permalink

The author creats a vivid image of the heroine by narrating her emotions and thoughts fluently.

Once picking up the book, your mood would be taken hold by the plot.

It's a good book contains struggle for love and women's battle based on Japanese culture.
