    The fates of two women, one American, one Japanese, become entwined in this sweeping novel of 19th century Japan on the cusp of radical change and Westernization. The Japanese tea ceremony, steeped in ritual, is at the heart of this story of an American girl adopted by Kyoto's most important tea master and raised as attendant and surrogate younger sister to his privileged daughter, Yukako.

    Pamela says: "Captivating"
    "Magical Cultural Experience"
    Overall

    This story is rich with insight into the Japanese culture from the eyes of a young foreign girl. It is a magical story and the narrator does a wonderful job.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Wonderful epic story"
    "Intriguing story for teenagers as well as adults"
    Overall

    I am mesmerized by the culturally rich and intriguing on-going story of several generations. I have read once and listened twice to the series. The criticism of the female voice is unwarranted. I believe the accent and voice fluctuations add to the charm of the foreign climate.
