When an epidemic threatens to destroy the silk trade in France, the young merchant Hervé Joncour leaves his doting wive and his comfortable home in the small town of Lavilledieu and travels across Siberia to the other end of the world, to Japan, to obtain eggs for a fresh breeding of silk worms. It is the 1860's; Japan is closed to foreigners and this has to be a clandestine operation. During his undercover negotiations with the local baron, Joncour's attention is arrested by the man's concubine, a girl who does not have Oriental eyes. Although the young Frenchman and the girl are unable to exchange so much as a word, love blossoms between them, conveyed by a number of recondite messages in the course of the four visits the Frenchman pays to Japan. How their secret affair develops and how it unfolds is told in a narration as beautiful, smooth and seamless as a piece of the finest silk

El 15 de agosto de 1839, en la ciudad siciliana de Mesina, la noble casa del mariscal Padellani bulle de actividad con los preparativos de la fiesta de la Asunción. Agata, la sexta hija del mariscal, no sospecha que ésos podrían ser sus últimos momentos de felicidad. Está enamorada del acaudalado Giacomo Lepre, pero, a pesar de ser correspondida, la lamentable situación económica de la familia la obliga a renunciar a él. En efecto, tras la muerte del mariscal, la madre de Agata, ya sin recursos, la interna en el monasterio de San Giorgio Stilata. Allí Agata vive y sufre las rencillas, odios y pasiones ilícitas entre las demás religiosas. Sólo encontrará consuelo en el estudio, en las tareas que le asignan y en la observancia de la rígida regla benedictina. Como válvula de escape, lee las novelas y libros de poesía que le envía James Garson, capitán británico al que conoció antes de profesar las órdenes. Mientras en Italia estallan las revueltas, Agata se debate entre la obediencia debida y sus deseos de intregrarse en el mundo exterior, y la velada presencia de James Garson hará que afloren en ella sentimientos que van más allá de sus ansias de libertad. -- Cover, p.
