I just finished a lovely book by Lucia St. Clair Robsen called The Tokaido Road. It was recommended to my husband by his brother. My husband found it in the local library and liked it so much he read it quickly and passed it to me.
A story about a young samaurai woman, determined to avenger her father’s death, it takes us through 1700’s Japan. I loved the realistic depiction of Japanese culture, fashion, hair do’s and language. The book is based on an actual historical event in Japanese history and brings us along on the young woman’s journey.
If you love a good action story, love the feel of a lush and rich story world, you’ll love this biik. There are swords, danger, chases, and love. I recommend it highly.
